15 TDI oversized tire fitment

I know there are some threads for max tire size, but I did not seen anything specific to the tdi, which has the intercooler vents. I want something that will be larger but still give plenty of space, even when full lock or the suspension is compressed. I am on the factory tdi sport 18s and currently have 255/55/18s I am looking at the Terra Grapplers in a 255/60/18 or G2s in a 265/60/18. Does anyone have a T3 or newer tdi with the 265/60 18s? Pics? any issues?

Because you're not dealing with a different rim (not changing width, offset, etc), simply crank your own setup to the max (where you have the least amount of clearance to your area of concern) and take some measurements. Then calculate your new overall diameter to fall within those specifications.

It sounds like they are looking for off road tires. I'm considering a set of Cooper Zeon LTX tires... but first a spare set of rims.
