Just ordered the RE-11's

ended up with 255 front and 275 rear. pretty good compromise for 8.5" wide fronts and 10" wide rears.

A 255 will fit but will be a bit ballooned which will give it more side wall flex.

The ratio doesn't really matter when talking about tire size, just the wheel width.

I prefer the 245 tire on an 8.5 wide wheel.
wait, is it for track use only?

So, mandatory backup cameras in 2014....

Just because some Darwin award nominee in her Escalade ran over her crotch fruit in the driveway does not mean we all need back up cameras.

If all cars were louder and had manual transmissions, we wouldn't have this issue.
