no, 225.50 would be the right size, and 50 series, i think, looks rediculous with 18s. 50 series arent really low profile enuff, just wait til u get the teins and it will look good.

k here's the thing, i dont' really want to lower my car, at all, 'cause i have a lot of steep driveways/big potholes around this area that I will have difficulity getting onto once I'm lowered.

And it looks like I need to lower it at least 2 inches to remotely close the gap. then i'll have to spend on camber 'cause the tires will wear like crazy.

So for the sake of my rims, my wallet, and my kit, i'd prefere to stuff it with some thicker tires, i think the stocks are around 245/60, so maybe i'll go 235/50 will i rub like crazy?? anyone?

i wouldn't do it. it'll mess with your speedometer. keep the 40 series. my 18's are doing fine on the crappy streets here in Kansas.

ya but you dont' have to worry about your front being scraped.... and from the looks of it i'll have to lower at least 2.5" i know for a fact that my front is going to be destroyed and i need a camber kit, which costs too much for me, so who can tell me about the thickest tires i can go without rubbing? after maybe 1.5" lowered?

scary d00d. I definitely don't recommend it. I've seen it cause trannies to have problems on other cars. imagine putting real off road tires on your car. the tranny wouldn't like it. it's the same idea.
