Those tires are big

And what's the offset of the rims? 8.5's are cutting it close.

I'm running 18" x 8.5's front and rear with no problems, however, like 808 said, it depends on the offset of the rim.

Also, those tires are pretty big. See if you can have a tire shop test fit them for you. Most places will do it.

I'm running 225/40/18s on a very low PT and haven't had any issues.. even with 4 people in the car and beach gear, with the fender lip sitting OVER the top of the tire itself.. :P
