The front is already rolled from the factory. They should fit, the stockers are 8 inches wide with a 48mm offset and 245 width tire, with a 38mm offset you're pushing the wheel 10mm out and then you're adding 10mm worth of width with the tire. I think there would only be a problem if you run a tire with too much sidewall.

hey guys. with an 18x8 with a 38mm off-set, will 255's fit up front with a rolled fender? or is the problem with hitting the strut?
I'm running 18 x 8 / 40mm with 245/40-18s with about a 1/2" drop in front (Pedders Street II).

Plenty of strut clearance but I do get some outside sidewall rubbing during hard cornering - front only.

I just put some 255/40r17's on front today with a 17x8 40mm offset. I am also running 1.5 degrees of negative camber to help cornering and they are really close to the strut. I am going back to discount tommorow and having them pulled off to see if there is rubbing. If there is off they come and back to the 245/45's. I would rather have a smaller tire that I can set the camber where I want than a wider one where I can't run a lot of camber.
