Yea I've seen that before. They also say if you go over 3% that you risk brake failure... The 20's I had and my current wheels are well over 3%. I wouldn't believe everything on the Internet

I only believe it because I've experienced it. Just answer me this.
Which wheel is more beneficial: 18x8.75 all around or 18x9.5 all around?

18x9.5, more traction since you'll be able to run a wider tire

For the rear? I had the same tires and sized rims a few sets ago. Actually mines were 265/30/19 and I didn't rub on S-techs

A 45 profile on a 255 tire is a bit unnecessary. You'll only need 35 at the most since you're going quite a bit wider than stock

What is your preference on going up to 255/45 instead of keeping 255/40?

Just looks too small on this big body car. Ride quality as well and road noise. I rather lower the car 2" on 255/45 rather than go 3" on a 255/40 it's all what you prefer.

Talk about skinny tires.

Before my wheels now I was running a 255/30/20. Those are the wheels that are laying down which are the rears, there's plenty of tread. My fronts were 225/30/20 and those were rubber bands. People always thought they were flat. 255/45 is gonna give you a monster truck tire.

I'm lowered on Sportline springs don't plan on buying coilovers, I believe sportline is 2" all over. So I fully agree with you on that I'd prefer 255/ 45 on 18x9.5 any day. And you are right stock is 45. I have 245/45 on the stock wheel.

Oh my car is a satin black vinyl wrap.

255/45 is going to be pretty thick. The stock gt comes with 225/45 right? Since you're going wider the profile is a percentage based on width. If the width is wider the profile will need to come down. If the profile remains the same as stock and you go with a wider tire you'll end up throwing your speedo way off because your tires will be really really thick, especially if you go up to a 19" or 20" rim. Trust me on this man.

It doesn't need to come down. Only reason why people bring it down is cause of rubbing issues. Which this car wont. I got 275/35 rears and got plenty of space I would go 40 but that size is rare and a lot more. Most people go wider and smaller because of price and availability.

I've never seen anyone going with a smaller profile because of the price but who knows. All I know is that once the tire gets wider the profile should come down to compensate.

The stock tire is 235/45. The width of tire really only benefits from the width of the wheel. I think you have the right concept but you have it backwards. If you have 18x10.5 width wheels and you stick a 235/45 tire on well then you won't throw your speedo off because you haven't increased or decreased the radius of the tire AND wheel. Now like in your situation you have larger wheel with a smaller tire than stock. Although you have gained more wheel width your tire radius from top to bottom has grown smaller causing your tire to take more time to rotate on its axis. You car was designed to rotate on 235/45 axis which is why they tell you not to customize your ride over 3% because there are consequences. If I have to have a monster truck tire to get a wider WHEEL so I can go 65 around a curb and remain in control then so be it.... If I rub then I'll hate myself but I highly doubt I will

Speed is not gonna matter it's only a difference of 23mph
That's like telling most guys who run 225/45 to run 225/50 since then went with a skinnier tire than stock. 10.5" wheel on a tire def doesn't belong on a 235 tire that's a stretch. Anyone running 10.5 should be 275315 size tire anything below is a stretch. Even Vossen guys running 10.5 use 275+. Brandon has Vossens and he is running a stretch and I beleive his tire is a 235. Its all what you prefer this is modifying a car so what should be is throwing out of the window.
That's my sizes on Htecs I get plenty of play room.

This was my friends supra according to someone of y'all his tire size is "monster truck"

Like I said it's all what you like and what you want your car to look like. I personally hate low profile tires. I rather ride height be higher with no gap and bigger tire

It's funny how these websites say that a 255/45/18 tire will make the speedo read slower. That's the exact opposite of 1010tires.com

Blackhawk is on a distinguished road
I would never run these thick ass tire set ups mentioned here. I mean seriously who cares if it makes the car slower?? I wanna see some low profile tires with a nice ass stretch. The way I see it, looking good while driving is a hell of a lot better than simply being "fast". All too many times I see nice rims ruined by people who don't know crap about how to make their rims work with their car. End up seeing 17s with tires so fat they are probably 3 inches thick. Yuuuukkk

X2 to this ^ unless of course your car is solely for track or drag racing. My tires hook up great and they're rubber bands

Nice ride. I really like that hood. Is that the OEM aero front lip?
