Rear Tires

My rear Run-Flats are due for replacement and I was wondering if 255/40/18 will fit without rubbing or causing any problems? I was planning to go OEM size when the time came until the opportunity of getting new 255/40/18 Conti Extreme DW for dirt cheap came along. Also if you are running 255s can you post pix of rear and side view? Thanks in advanced.

I have 255/35/18 Michelin AS3+ on the rear of mine. Stock sport suspension and no rubbing at all. Not sure if going to 40 series in the rear will work though. The taller sidewall might cause issues.

Thank you so much for the pix, 255 does look nice. Hope 40 does not make much difference than 35, has any one run 40 height?

Don't run 255/40, it'll be way too tall.

Thanks for the advice, I thought it would be too but wanted to make sure.
