That is the same as my wheels except for being 18s. I run 255/40. So if you run 255/35 you would be running the same as me. Rears need to be rolled. Post pics when you get whatever.

BTW: You may want to run a 245 instead. I am likely going to slightly smaller tires to improve the rolling diameter, though it won't be for a while.

Because I know a guy who has one.

There is a maroon 184 with a 3sgte that has one. It looks pretty decent. You got pics?

I currently have 18x8s, 235/40-18 (+35 offset). No rubbing on the outside/slight rub on the inside. Looking for 17x9 (+30 or +35 offset with 235/45-17 tires)

Are you on stock struts? I forget those are bigger than coilovers.
