Fat looking 255s

I am running Falkens GRB FK-451s 255/35/18 rears on my BBS CH 18X8.5 and they look too narrow to my liking, especially from the rear. I heard the Pirellis are pretty heavy shouldered and would appear fatter for a given width. Any other tyres you know off that will look fat for a 255?

any tires other than falkens will look fat. i had the falkens Grb in 235/35/19 and they looked skinny as hell. My gf's tires on her IS300, 215/45/17 looked fatter than mines.

Pirellis are pretty fat looking.
