I dont think so, provided the wheels have the right offset, I have 255/40R18 at the front and 285/40R18 rears no problems whatsoever.

Yeah, the big question is what wheels are you going to run with those tires?

Yes! They will fit as long as you have a 35 to 40 mm offset. I am running them on the back with Eibach pro springs and have zero rub problems.

Why not just run the 275/40/18's all the way around? Others have done it.

I helped a guy with a Saleen, he was able to fit 335/30/18's in the rear without rubbing.
