You have the 20x9 +8 LM-R wheel. Your tire size and brand look appropriate for that wheel, but the sizing you chose is very aggressive.

I'd suggest getting a height adjustable suspension, along with camber adjustment, to give the car the correct stance. You will need to lower the car significantly and increase camber to get the right look.

Getting wider tire still would not work... you need to either raise it up or do a massive camber... or option 3 sell it and get the proper size and offset.

What tire size are you running in the front? I would run a slightly wider tire if its possible.
I would also suggest buying coilover suspension and adjusting the camber.

245 will be the widest I would do. You will RUB if you go 255. It's been covered many times. Rear, most have been running 275. I have 285 on my rear with no rubbing. I'm running the aggressive offset +8 front and +18 rear

height adjustable coilover + camber plate + right tire (245/30-20) is the way to do that fitment!
