I'm thinking 275 in the rear and 255 in front, both on the 18x9.
If I'm correct, that would put the outer edge of the tire out about 1/2" further than yours, and the inner edge of the tire would be about 1/2" closer to the frame rail.


Thanks,
Chris
You would probably need to relocate the parking brake cable, it's a very close fit with the 255's so wider tires would probably rub.
