265's on the OEM wheels will be ok but you will get slight bulging of the side walls (depending on which tire you go with as some fit wider than others)...
I run 255's on the OEM BBS's and its about as wide as I would go on the 8.5" wide wheel. Plus with a 255 you get the slightly taller side wall rather than smaller with the 265s and it makes for a smother ride

265's (NT05's) will not bulge at all...maybe Z1's or RS-3's.

And here I thought NT05's fit wide.... If I would have gone with 265 Michelin PS2's I guaranty they would have been bulging as my 255's bulge more than those 265 NT05's

A little bit of bulge isnt that bad, plus it protects your wheels form curbing lol

Kinda off subject but related to this. i have Nitto NT-05s in 275/40 18s on a 10 inch rim on my Z with no stretch. Do you think the NT-05s 265/35 18s will look stretched on a 9.5 inch rim? I would think not but hate a stretched look and guess need to know before ordering.
