I have the same drop, same size rims, and I have 255's on the back.

You'll need to modify.

I had to stiffen my springs and roll my fenders... did it by hand though. If you go to a shop like WHeel & Tire Zone to roll your fenders you'd be looking at around $150 for both sides... still doesn't guarantee they won't rub during hard cornering. Of course the offset of your rims play a major factor too.

this is how it looks when dropped.. there's a lot more wheel tuck than how it looks in the pictures... though the 18's don't tuck as much as my 16 winter wheels for some reason.
