    Nope, no interest in having any bragging rights to a "265 club"
    A 265/40R17 is the same diameter as the stock 235/40R18 ... and that is the only reason.

    Although it is mathematically the same diameter, I noticed (after very minimal research) that the 265/40R17 tire size is quite rare ... and PRICEY!
    (I almost withdrew the question from the forum, but I'm still interested in other members thoughts and opinions)

    They will fit just fine on the 235/40-18's that the STH/SH comes with stock, but if you don't get too aggressive with your lowering, you can get away with 245/40's, or 245/35's. The latter size runs up your mileage on the car a lot quicker though, so be forewarned! Nice looking wheels btw.
    If you decide on the 245/40's, go with the Eibach Pro-Kit, great quality springs, you won't be disappointed.

    I have Skunk 2 Springs on my sedan. Firm ride, Not bouncy, Great in my opinion if you want a tight ride. It reduced my body roll alot too.

    I am also running skunk2 spring with 18x9.5 +40 235/40/18s. Ride is firm, not bouncy at all, wife approved. Not low quality crap like older gens were. I have 10k miles on mine with no issues, no rubbing, no abnormal camber wear with no alignment. No camber kit either. I have had eibachs on another car and these seem just as good to me.

    Do you happen to know the wheel weight in your specs? I can't find the information anywhere.

    I forgot to weigh them with the tire on but the wheel alone is 19.9 lbs. Not the lightest but shaved close to 40 lbs all around.
