255-40/18 in the front is huge. As is a 9.5 inch wide wheel with a 30 offset. You are not going to get that to fit in the front with what I consider minor modifications, especially if you are...

^ If you are having a shop do the work the price between paint and powdercoat is going to be negligable. I wouldn't even consider paint if I was having someone else do the work.

For better or worse, I stopped paying a-lot of attention to factory alignment specs, so I don't remember what they are. I think somewhere in the range of 0 to -1.5 degrees for camber? :confused:

215/50-17 would be a good choice as well. Keep in mind that usually as a tire gets more narrow the load rating goes down, so some shops might not sell you a set of 205s or 215s for a 2IS.

They don't put 225/255 on non-staggered wheels, they put 225/245 on non-staggered wheels. 225/245 on an 8" wheel are within manufacturer specs.

What size are the tires? 255/275 doesn't tell you the diameter of the tire. Although even a 255/30 is big for the front of the car; I'd be suspicious as well.
