255 will probably rub w/o rolled fenders.
I can't remember if I've asked.. what're the offsets on your 718's?

Rolling & pulling are two different things.. with rolled fenders, you could probably fit 235's in the front and 255's in the rear, if the offset is right.

Coolioj: Are you lowered?

You might be okay with 235's up front if your fenders are rolled (assuming you will drop it)
If you don't want to roll them, go with 225's.

If you don't want to roll your rears, go with 245..
That's just my input..

255 should be ok without a roll but it also depends on the tire brand. Some are wider than others. I'm running Hankook V12 and if they made 255 it would have fit.

Sorry my size tires I'm running are 235/35/19 and 265/30/19. My front is stock, and my rear is pulled a bit. Not much though. I am lowered and tucking rear tire.

Here is a link to the available sizes for the Hankooks http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....s+V12+evo+K110

Looks good! I think I'm gonna go 225 on my 8.5's and 245 on my 9.5's. Untouched fenders.
My offsets are 40 and 45. I might run 5mm spacers either in the rear or all around (we'll see after I put the wheels on).

Thoughts?

That should work but the you will have that stretched tire look. It depends on if you like that. 235 worked for me in the front without fender work. Seeing that you have a 40 offset up front 235 should fit no prob, but you may need a spacer to clear your coil overs or struts putting you at 35 like me. Rear coupes should fit 255/265 without fender work from what I've read.

Good luck.

Those look real nice! I'm going to be honest though, your car would have looked much better with black wheels.
Can't wait to get mine on >

I think you meant to say you might* do a different bumper.. lol.
I have the m3 bumper on mine, but eventually I want to get a bumper with no fitment issues.. because this m3 one off ModBargains is too wide for the front end.
