This would assume that I buy another staggered set of 400M wheels (8 and 8.5s), although it seems that the 8.5s may not work on the front axle due to the offset.
I am running 8.5's et37 upfront and have this much room between the rim and strut:

(smooth spot on strut is just from my hand reaching up there, its not making any contact while driving)


I can fit a finger between the rim and strut but only to my first knuckle, second doesnt fit. If yours are et47, a 10mm spacer would give you the same fitment. I am only running 225.45.19's though, so baby stretch compared to a 255 that would be a bit more meaty:
