Tire size question

guys ive asked a few people and i get mixed answers. i need to know if a set of 245's will fit on my car. now i understand that camber and toe have lots to do with this and at the current moment i am not running any camber plates. my main concern are the rears not the front i will probably run a staggered setup (235's in front). i really need to go as wide as possible in the back to keep traction.

-rims are 18x8 w/ 35mm offset
-suspension H&R sport springs (i believe 1.5 drop)
-fenders not rolled yet
-no camberplates will get an alignment right after they are installed.

thanks

Depends on what strut tower mounts you use, what CAB's you use, etc

I run 235's on stock m contours in the rear and have tons of room, could likely fit 255's w/ uuc stage 3 suspension.
