Hey guys, as the title says, looking for the max tyre size (width) that would fit stock 18x8" rims.
Reason is, I'm looking for some new tyres with decent grip, but reasonable life (about 20,000kms is good).
I've found a set of 265/35/ZR18's (93 load rating) that my mate says are good, so I'm pretty keen...
Cheers in advance :beerchug:

You will find someone who may fit a 255. It isn't a good idea from what I have been told. Never heard of a 265 on them.

Ok, cheers guys.
Does anyone happen to know if there's any engineering shops
(in Perth) that would widen rims an inch or so?
I want to keep it looking like a bit of a sleeper.

No one in perth can widen an alloy wheel. If you want wider tyres , buy wider rims
