My car uses Front tires 245/40 R18 and rear 265/35 R18, can I upgrade to Front 255/40 R18 and Rear 285/35 R18 with the same rims? I am not sure If I have to buy another set of R18 rims because the new tires will be wider.

Do you
have the same problem?

You cannot change tire size because the computer is referencing a particular size, if you change it the computer could throw a code.
