Tire fitment

Anyone go with fatter tires on stock set up. Thinkin about going from the stock 235/45R18 to 255/45ZR18.

Just not sure how much of a chance ill rub. Is there any way to fully compress the suspension without driving to see how low it would go if say i hit a really bat pot hole or corner really hard to see if its gunna rub?

Planning on putting these on stock 18x8's

Yeah, undo the sway bar end links and it'll roll right over when you push down

For speedo readings, 255/45/18 would read 2% high, 255/40/18 would read 1% low.

255mm wide on an 8" rim is pretty extreme. 235 is generally about as wide as you'd go. For a 255, 9-9.5" would be ideal
