We show the widest tire with no rubbing is a 255/45R-18. A 265/45R-18 shows as an extended fit so you may have some rubbing.

Give us a call if we can be of assistance.

I was told the 255/45/18 will rub in the rear. Clearance in the front, but rubbing in the rear. Can you verify that will work?? I ask because I'm within weeks of buying tires and I wanted 255's, but was told 245's were the widest I could do without spacers or some other modification.

I used a 2010 Impala LTZ for fitment. Our guide shows a 255/45R-18 as an ideal fit for both front and rear.

10-4. I don't know where you went for tires, or what kind of tire you got, but $300 each is ridiculousness!! The only way I could see paying $1200 for tires is if you get lifetime balance, rotation, and alignments with them. Everything I've been looking at is $200 a tire, and that's with valve stems, TPMS, and old tire disposal fees.
