The avatar pic looks good. Maybe one from the side to show how much poke there is?
I'm bad with pics. I can never get them to attach correctly lol

Here's a shot looking straight down. 18 8 40 with 255/45/18... almost perfect flush and looks to be enough room to clear brembo if I wanted them...

Looks good! I want to get close to flush, but I like the stock wheels and just got a deal on Goodyear eagle sport in 225/55/18, so I'm probably going to look into spacers. Plus, I still have some cusco braces and/or the jdm flexible braces I want to do first

I wasn't sure about the long term impacts of spacing the wheels out... however...can't beat a deal but I've always been told, the more rubber on the road the more stick you will get... *racecar*

Well I don't know if I'll be running them for long, since they may be the cause of my cruise control not working now... but I got some lightly used Bridgestone RE-71 265/35 r18 to go onto the ol 18x9 RS055R Enkies. If they are the cause them I'll try for some 255s next as I really don't want my rim lip sticking out light it did running the 245/45 tires.

No rubbing issues with the 265/35/18 Bridgestone RE71R tires (STI springs). They are much louder the old 245s and I can feel a slight vibration in the steering wheel even after balancing. Have yet to try out just how sticky they make the Fozzy. A buddy joked saying that I would just end up rolling the car since I won't feel any roll and then BAM! After this set I may go back down to 255's, but I couldn't pass up these tires slightly used for 500.

Have found the RE71R tires to be too squishy in the sidewall when trying to take certain types of loaded corners so I'll probably try some 255 whatevers for my next tire.

IMHO, 265 is too wide for a 9" wheel. 255 max.
