Noob tire and wheel question

So I tried searching and everyone wants to know what's the widest tire they can run on the stock rim but I am actually interested in what's the widest wheel I can run on stock tires. I have stock 18's on my 2013 gt I am interested in purchasing the sve drifts in a 18x9 and upgrading the tires later. Will I be able to run those safely on stock 235 pirellis until I upgrade the tires? Also when I upgrade tires will a 265 or 275 tire fit safely on the 18x9 wheel? Thanks for your help in advance I am at a loss when it comes to tire and wheel combinations.

The 275s will fit the 9" wheels. Not sure about the minimum, give discount tire a call, they're the best in the business and would be glad to help.

Yes you can run a 235 on a 9' but it won't look right. Will look like you are trying to stretch the tire

I wouldn't run 235s on a 9" wide wheel. If you are going to get new wheels, get new tires to fit them.

Cool thanks for all the replies sounds like if I did run the stock tires it would be pushing it. I may give discount tire a call and get their opinion as well. I am sure they are gonna wanna sell me tires though. Has anybody ever personally run that setup?

No issues at all. I bought the car with the wheel setup and he ran it for about 15k miles plus 6k miles that I ran it. It was time for new tires so I purchased some 255

Googled sve drifts and found this guy running 18x9 on stock pirellis up front he is running 285's out back. Might go ahead and pull the trigger on them soon. And upgrade tires later.

Did some more digging around looks like the 235 is on only suggested to go up to an 8.5. I don't think I feel comfortable running them on the 9, guess I am just going to have to save up for tires and wheels and run the plasti dipped stockers for a while. Anybody know a fair price for stock 18's on 235 pirellis?

The INVO's hook up well for a "non drag radial" plus they are like glue in the corners...
