So if a tire calls for 8.5" to 9" rim width it should fit, right? so maybe (if anyone makes them) we can go larger then 255/45/18?

Your rims fit the Eagle F1 GS-D3s which is all you need to know . By far the best all-around performance tire for the money I think.

I just ordered 2 265/40/18 BF Goodrich KDW NT for my Rear tires. When they come in I'll post some pictures. Already got a flat in the stock tire. I hate running a tire when it's plugged.

Kevin - any more information on those tires? I'm in the process of looking for a set of 255/45-18's for my GT/CS. I've had really good luck with the Bridgestone Potenza RE050 "Pole Position" tires in the past - but they don't make a 255/45 size which is very close to the same diameter as the stock 235/50-18's.
