Urgent: Wheel fitment

Well, i noticed my tire pressure was extremely low so i removed my wheel and i found two massive bends.

So it's time i get a new setup and i need your help.

Will it fit 255/35/18 on 18x8.5 et 40 on a 01 coupe

As far as i can tell it should be fine.

Even a 245 is a little big, I'd run a 225 or 235. I had a 235/40 on my 8.5s and it was a pretty beefy fit

Rear should be fine, but I don't know about a square fitment like that. Good luck, OP!
