i ran 17x8.5 ET 50 in the rear with 255/40/17 on my sedan w/ rolled fenders. I threw on a 15 mil spacer to push it out to ET35, I was pretty low and I only rubbed a little.

so i'd say you can run 255s with that 40 offset even if you're lowered. will be nice and meatyyy

You'll be fine. I ran 8.5" ET35 rear, I was pretty low and I barely ever rubbed.

sorry i meant your rim and your tire are the same? for instance my tire is 255/35/18 et 35, and rim is 40 et. since you have 35 et wheels does that mean yours would poke out more? the lower the et the greater the offset is from the car? sorry im trying to get this right lol

Say what? Tires don't have an ET (offset), the '35' in '255/35/18' is the aspect ratio of the sidewall.

But yes if my rims were 8.5" wide, ET35 (offset of +35mm), that means that in comparison to your rims, 8.5" wide ET 40, mine will stick out an extra 5mm.
