275/35/18 fits fine. So a 265 tire should fit with room to spare. Here is a good thread to hang on to.

As always it depends on brand somewhat. Nittos are narrow tires but remember that the link you posted notes the 275 on a 9" wheel which keeps the sides from bulging out as much

Very true! I didn't even notice that. My mistake.

There are quite a few people running 245/40/18 in the rear. There are also some running 275/35/18.

On an 8" wheel a 245 is the maximum recommended tire size. You won't have an even contact patch with tires larger than that. I use 265 but on a 9.5" wheel.

<-- Guess which ones quicker?.....Nope! Not even close.
