Staggered Wheel fitment

I am going to to a staggered wheel fit on my 2005 GTO. I like the TSW Nurburgring Matte Gunmetal 18X8 frnt and 18x9 rear, has anyone fit TSW wheels with 275/35ZR18 Nitto Nt05's or BFG's on the rear without fender rolling? I would like to go with 245/40ZR18 up front but I am concerned about strut rub. Car has no issues with stock 17's. Would I be better off going 265/35ZR18 rear and 235/40ZR18 front to avoid strut rub and rear fender rolling? Has anyone installed 275/35 and 245/40's with out issues. Any thoughts would help prior to install of wheel/tire package. Thanks

why not just roll the rears and fit more tire back there? 245s on the front shouldn't cause you any issues. I'm running a 245 on a 18x8 RPM 505, 265s out back with rolled fenders onm 18x9s

I got em used, but the listings I've found are 38 rear, and 20 or 38 front. I'm not sure which fronts I have.

The fronts shouldn't have any problem with strut rub as the wheels will be out farther than stock (they're a 48mm offset). Also because of the rear 38mm offset that wheel will be out 10mm farther than stock and will make putting on bigger tires nearly impossible without rolling. I have 285s in the back but have a 55mm offset AND rolled fenders on 9" wheels

RPM wheels/Nitto tires

Thanks for the info on fit, ordering RPM 508 wheels 18X8 frnt/18x9 rear with Nitto NT05 tires, 245/40/18 frnt and 275/35/18 rear. I know rear fender will need to be rolled, found local shop that can do work. I am also looking into installing BMR Drag bags just to make sure tire does not contact rear fender. Let everyone know how this fit works. Thanks

Let me know how the 275 rear fits. I'm rolled and I still rub my 265s occasionally.
