Rim size and tire question...

People have been telling me that 235/40/18 with an offset of +42mm will rub like crazy if i'm dropped. But i was wondering, can't i just buy 225/40/18 tires instead of my 235 to prevent the rubbing? Or does it all depend on the offset?

Depend on the offset and wheel width. If your wheel is 7.5" wide, +42 is okay. Any wider than that you need +45 offset or above.

I mean with 225/40R18 not 235/40R18.
