18x9.5 e45 - 255/35/18 Tires - Front Strut Clearance

I've already tried searching on all the threads for this fitment for tires to confirm that they clear the front strut. Also used all the calculators.
I seen a lot of threads and information on 38-40 offset , not much about +45 and tires used.

Can anyone confirm that this will clear my coils? (Don't give me crap about offset, I've got these wheels for a good price)

Running FA V500 + Camber Bolts -1 Drop -2 Camber

Planning to run 18x9.5 e45 with BFG Sport Comp 2 - 255/35/18 or
will I have to step back to 245/35/18 or
Just run 8mm spacers?

It should fit. All the problems everyone else has is from stock struts. Just get some 3-5mm spacers from a local auto parts store and keep them handy when installing the wheels. If they fit, return them or use them in the rear.
It won't rub the struts, but other things may rub. 3-5mm max spacers on stock studs.

Thanks Yamaha. Swarb, I'll be on ARP studs tomorrow so thread count won't be an issue (pre planned)

Just hoping to see if anyone else has the same wheel / fitment.
