Rim/Tire Question

OK so I bought the VMR CSL reps little over a year ago and I am running 235's squared non-staggered. I would like to run 255's in the rear but have no idead how wide my rim is. I looked on the VMR site and it shows 8.5 being the smallest width, is this true? Would it be possible to run 255's?

EDIT: It seems I could run 255 in the rears with an 8.5. My 235 fit pretty flush with the rim already, would there be anything bad about fitting a 255? Also I dont have much rim/fender clearance with my setup, how would this effect it? would I rub?

Thanks, Ryan.

255/35/18 can be used on a 8.5" wheel but it will look very bulgy. Rear fender roll may be required since the tire will be tapering out.

ooo, does anybody have any pics of this.... also how much would staggered rears only be from you guys? I am not sure what I am running right now but I have 235's in the rear and minor fender rolling in the rear. What wheel offset etc. should I use in the rear on a 18" rim and width at 9.5" with 255? I have a 2004 330i sedan.
