Can i run 18 X 10 et+15 on my R32 GTR without arch mods?
I,m currently running 19" 235/35/19 front (8.5) & 285/35/19 (9.5) rear
I know this is the wrong combo tyre wise but i have some 18x10's kicking about....can i use them?

I wouldn't go any bigger then 265 road tires but even then you'll probably get a bit of rubbing on lock and suspension compression at the front.

whats the smallest tyre that will fill the 10" rim?
I was thinking 255/35/18 tyres will they still rub?

No idea mate...

I know from experience that 275's will catch as will 265 cut slicks (squarer side wall profile).

265 road tires (T1R and F452) were ok but would still catch a bit under compression.

I ended up having my arches rolled.

They would fit with a stretch. Depending on the tyre I'd be worried about the rims and the fit.

265 would be better but I think 275 would be the recommended minimum for 10".

I would say you'd be better off with 18x9.5 or even 18x9. Both are tried and tested, you might even find that the wheels are cheaper - certainly lighter.
