those widths are too big for the stock 18's.

will they fit...probably, however they will bulge, and arent optimal

do 245 265

I think he wrote his sizes wrong. Definitely needs more research in this forum. (I put +1 on my 18s and they're great.)

Hey OP-- those tire size should work great for you.

Those widths are at about the limit of what you would want to run with the 18" rims, but they should work perfectly.

They are also effectively the same diameter as stock, so no issues there.

How about 285-35-19 rear and 245-40-19 front?. They fit and are on the car, I screwed up ordering that size for fronts. Anyone think of any problems I can have? Seems to be driving fine but haven't punched it.
