Can I run 255's up front comfortably? beacause I just got three brand new 255/35/18's for next to nothing price wise! So guys, you think it will rub when turning?

Yes. It may rub if your car is lowered though. My fronts rubbed when the car bottomed the suspension.

I have 255-40-18's up front my car on a 9" wheel; I'd never run a 35 on the front of my car, due to the profile of the tire....once bad pothole and the rim & tire are done.

I've been running 255/35 X 18 front tires for a few years with no problems at all, never rubs or touches anything under any driving condition...but as stated above, this depends on your wheel offset and size.

I run 275/40/17s up front with slightly modified fenders (stock with some heat and tlc) and no rubbing. Those are yoko avs's though, which i know to be a touch thinner than other tires. I ordered new eagle f1's and i'm taking them in 265 this time.

But you can DEFINITELY run 255's in front.

Hmm 285/30/18 seems like such a desirable size, given the reported increase in response from 18s. I am surprised to see no rubbing issues with those. What offsets are you running?
