my rim are 45 offset and I have 225 and I had to roll the rear finder . You have 42 offset with 235 it will rib like crazy. you should have gotten a highter offest you you wanted to go witha bigger tires.

I have 18x7.5 with 225-40 with a 43mm offset
with a 2.25 inch drop . I RUB all the time
i am afraid to roll my fenders with the bat so i
will probably get coiloversleeves to raise it up ;
in the back. thats is the cheapest option right?

would it matter if it was a difference tire size like 215/40/18 or is it just the fact that the offset is too low. im thinking of getting some rims and the dimension on the thing is 215/40/18 +42 offset 18x7.5.. help?!

if you were dropped 2 inches, would you still have that rubbing problem? what springs are you using that gives a 2.25 drop anyways?

ok.. well, i put them on and they don't look too bad... the traction with those tires are crooshul though... but I can tell just by the looks of it that I probably will have some rubbing in the back with those tires... i'll prolly just end up rolling the fenders... i dunno yet
