yep, it can, but you might need any combo of the following:
-extra negative camber
-higher offset wheel
-rolling of the fender

So either higher offset than 40mm, I might roll the fenders since it is going for paint soon. But its kinda wierd having a 8.5inch rim all around and a 255 on the rear and a 325 on the front.

That's the same setup I'm running on.. 225/40/18 on the front, 255/35/18 on the back. I had to roll fenders to get the back to fit, but my rims are +35.

Though this setup was recommended for me... I really don't recommend it, as I find the car follows the grooves in the road way too much.. (way way way too much.)

It was mostly all the look, beastly tires in the rear
But no one fears a 318 so

I can get away with 245 on the front?

ET40 8.5? Yeah. It'll be close though, if your springs are soft you may catch the fender.
