Need some help, 245 or 255

Hey guy need some help to see what tire size I should get. Did some searching around and found that a 18x8 rim with 35 offset and 245/40/18 tire will fit out cars no problem. But I did find a few post suggesting a 255 could be fitted but couldn't really find much info on that. I'm looking at getting OZ Ultraleggeras. I have the Mopar Stage 3R COs so I shouldn't have much issues with clearance on the suspension side. I am more concerned with the fender side. Will I have to roll it to get it to fit? Do I need to look at a 8.5 inch rim? and what offset should I be looking at. Any help is greatly appreciated!

PTE6765, t-4 Pro Series manifold, 3in piping from turbo to TB, Avenger Pro-Mod head, DCR IM, DCR intercooler w/ 3in inlet and outlet,
DCR: 2.6 over 40, CP Ignition,
Mopar: Sway Bars, S3R CO, Ti Strut Bars, RCAs, Camber Plates
Rage-Tek: LCA, HTOB, Triple Fuel Pumps, 3/4 fork
Monster: Triple Disc
AEM: EMS w/ 3.5 BAR sensor
Boomba: All 3 MM

I have the Superlegerras 17x8 with a -35 offset and old school IIP coilovers. At the very least you will have to roll the fenders, I am no expert but 245 might be a little wide. With the 17s I have maybe .5" between the shock towers and the tire. Maybe stow can shed some more light on your question.

245/40-18 is way tall without significant fender modifications. You've probably already found that out though.
