Well I got the 2017 now . I was running 245 on stock wheel with old 2014 but was lowered. Think I'm gonna stay with this suspension for at least a year. But I'm getting the m310 18x8.5 . Would a 255 40 18 be good? What is everyone else running?

Might want to go with 255/35; the 40's going to be taller than the factory size enough to throw off the speedo.

Here's my car, stock suspension, with 245/40-18s on those wheels. the 255's might be a bit TOO meaty with this much offset.

It will all be dependent on the offset of the 18x8.5's. I run a 245/40/18 on my daily wheels, and a 255/35/18 for my auto-x wheels. No issues rubbing on lowered suspension with 18x8.5's, but my wheel offsets are both +40.

So would 255 40 18 be safe to run .
at stock height you may be ok as far as inner clearance goes. if you lower the car any, you may rub unless you induce some more negative camber.
