Gearhead999s below says he's run R888's in that size and those run WIDE (a 265 R888 is wider then a 275 NT-01).

One customer mentioned running V710's in 275 with a minor rubbing issue, but I do not remember if that was strut tube rubbing or if it was fender liner rubbing while turning.

Hopefully someone can confirm the Hoosier and BFG fitment in that size on 18x10 et25.

You are correct, we either need to reference someone else's fitment for now, or someone has to do a little trial and error.

Raven Performance ran our 18x10's square on a E9X M3 with Michelin slicks what are either 275/35 or 285/30. Not sure if they spacer'ed that fitment. I'll ask them via email.

The Continental Slicks that are used in the Grand AM CTSCC are actually Hoosiers in a 275/35 18 and I had no issues with fit on the 18x10 @25p.The biggest issue was that the rears were done after 45 minutes of use

That blue E92 of Ravens is on Motons so the strut clearance is probally different than a stock strut.
