that size seems way too big for a non-m. I don't think you'll be even close to getting them to fit unless you have some sort of widebody.

Naw, that's way to wide in the rear. 265's are more than enough rubber in the rear of the Non-M, unless you are putting down some major power, but then you'll be thinking about massive fender flares, or a widebody, and I doubt you want to go there, or even need to.

Youll most likely have rubbing issues, and you won't be able to lower your car at all. You'll be creating some pretty unbalanced auto dynamics if you go with something that wide regardless of how wide your rims are.

Good Luck.
