    I am running 275/40x17 on my car and the only rubbing I get is when I turn my wheels to sharp. Shouldn't be much if any difference between the V6 wheel wells and GT wheel wells.

    i have 265/35 on an 18X9 wheel, so it is similar to your wheel and tire combo..im lowred at least 2 inches and barely rub on full lock.

    i think i have said this in another of your threads, but they will fit but they won't be the "right" fit in my opinion...your rims will be eft exposed and you will have a much better chance of curbing your rims instead of hitting your tire.
