I would almost rather go with the 18x10's for the rear, but need to know if the clearance is ok without any alterations.

Thanks for the help.
I've run into a couple of '05 and '06 owners that have 285s out back on an 18 X 9" wheel -- seems to be no problems.

I've attached a pic of my car with an 18 X 9" wheel with a 275 tire so you can judge the sidewall and rim proportion; I hope this is helpful in deciding how a 285 tire would look.
