Anyone running Hancook RS3 on Stock 135iM wheels?

I'm looking into ditching the run flats for some Hankook RS3's and would like to go with 225/40/18's in the front and 255/35/18 in the rear on stock M wheels and stock suspension.

I know that for the most part this setup works but the RS3's are a little wider than regular tires and want to make sure that I won't have any rubbing at full lock or hard cornering and would apprecite any feedback.

Thanks

Even with the small bump in size, you won't rub with that setup. There's plenty of room, especially with the stock suspension. If you drop the car in the future, you won't have to worry either unless you buy wider/bigger wheels.

No problem. Good luck! I should just correct the above by saying if you drop your car a lot and really SLAM it, of course you can run into problems. 99% of people with reasonably dropped suspensions are fine with the 225 / 255 sizes even on tires that are famous for wider/squarer shoulders like the RS3 and Star Specs.
