What Tire Size?

Hi Guys,

I picked up rims and need tires but not too sure on what to get. They are 18x8 +35. I have 20mm spacers in the rear and 5mm in the front (soon to be 10/15mm in the front); car is not dropped. I was thinking Hankook Evo V12's.

Size and offset after spacers:
F: 18x8 +30
R: 18x8 +15

Would 235/40 in the front and 245/40 in the rear be okay? I've seen some people post 225/40 but were told its too thin especially with 245/255's in the rear.

Trying for a flush look. Thanks.

Tires are way too wide for what you want. 225/40 is a better idea.

You should run 225/40R18 in the front and 245/35/18 on the rear.

255's are a bit too wide for 8" rims.

sent you pm
