You can fit a 335 although it has some bulge. I'm running a 305 toyo and have a 295 bfg on the wife's car.

Not all tires are the same width, do some research on actual tread width before purchasing.

This is true. It also comes down to what dot suggests. They say not to go beyond 295 on a 10 inch. I don't see why u can't go 305 easy.
But depends on the tire

Yes it depends on the tire also. When I compared my 305 hossiers to my 315 pirellis they looked dead even width wise

What are you wanting from the tires? Long life = less traction. Good traction = little life

Nittos have horrible life. I got 4k out of the one set I bought. My toyo r888's have lasted longer and it's a better hooking tire. The bfg kdw2 is a good tire as well. The ones on my wife's car have over 30k hard miles on them and hook pretty well

I've got Nittos and they've lasted 40k milesso far, including dozens of trips down the local track. Still have plenty of treadlife too.

You must have the 555, I was referring to the 555r. Never had luck on the 555 and I don't just have my cobra.

Going off tire experience on a 02v6, 90lx, 04gt and my 03 cobra.

17' tires will be cheaper but 18' will fill the gap more
