Yes they'll fit and that's from a stock 44 et 16x8 235.60.16 inch wheel and tire...35 et is the limit...millimeters make a difference...

The tires will be too small, they should be 255 x 45 x 18

Yeah they would be small they'll most certainly fit...255.45.18 is what I use for the rear with 35 et...I wouldn't use them on my coupe in the front...still looking for 225 or 235.45.18 to replace the 245.50.18 currently on my car...scrubbing is there...just more due to right side fender liner is buckled...still SMH...oh well

Thank You guys! Couple of questions...when you say you would not use them on your coupe?..why? will they rub? Other question....you said 35 et is max...and 44 is factory. Will the 35 rim sit deeper into the fender well or stick out of the fender well. I dont understand what this et measurement is... Thanks again.

On the pic below you see the ET35 ,they will be flush with the rear fender & fronts ,no rubbing at all ,only probs you will have is the small tyre on them ,ad like other have mentioned earlier the 255 /40/18 ,rear 275 /35-40/ 18 .

Read this threat ,most info was added there recently ,page 3 has more pics & info on tyre sizing etc .

My right side fender lining is also buckled a bit, and when i turn the steering wheel all the way to the right, the 255-45-18 tire rubs against it. Is there a way to correct the buckled inner fender lining ?
