this kinda sucks, cause i was planning to get these wheels with some 265's in the spring...
Tire size specs can be found at www.tirerack.com The thread found here will address your tire/rims fitment questions:

People running 265's require fender mods in order to avoid rubbing.

As i stated in my previous posts, I had to shave the rear fenders. I'll try and post pictures when i get a chance, but essentially shaving the rear fenders meant I had to cut a couple of mil's off the rear fender lips.

Not always. Some 265/35/18s on 18x9 +32 wheels do not require fender work.

Thank you. I stand corrected. What would you say it's the maximum offset that can be used without having to modify rear fenders, when 265/35/18's are used?

It really depends on the specific tire and, also, the wheel width. And then there's the camber (especially in the rear, to stay away from the fender lip) and whether your camber bolts are flipped (which affects the clearance between the front tire/wheel and the shock). A general statement would be misleading because it would not be generally correct.

What's your offset? I'm lowered on swift spec-r's and running rpf1's 18x9.5 +15 with the stock tires and have no issues
