They will be 1/4" more inside, no problem, and 3/4" more to the outside. It will take fender cutting/rolling and maybe get 265s on. It's hard to say with complete accuracy when you push the limits as these cars are not built with strict tolerances and what someone says works with their car may not work on yours without rubbing.

Tsw

Yeah I run TSW's with a +35 offset in the rear on mine, I also run a 275, but I had to completely roll my fenders to get them to fit. Fender rolling isn't a big deal, and my paint didn't crack at all.

Depends on any suspension changes have. If you are running stock height you have a better chance of not rubbing on 265. If you go 275 you should clear the outside but may have problems on the inside. You just need to move the inside with a bfh a little to make room. The 275's look really nice on the back end of our cars.
