You know there is a 215/40/18, that would be better compared to the 215/35/18. And to answer your question, it might rub, depending on who/what is on the car. Suggested offset should be around 45mm or more. 42mm might or might not rub, but 40mm is kinda on the border line. And the wheel is 18x7.5 I assume. If you have a 45mm offset, get 225/40/18..its wider and thicker sidewall = more comfort! haha.

hope this helps..

so a offset of 42mm is NOT going to rub with a 1.5 inche drop? Cuz alot of people are saying that you need at least a 45mm offset for it NOT to rub. I have prokits, and I want 18's also, I just want to make sure that 42mm is going to be ok.

it will be close, just roll your back fender or cut the plastic out, but i have a 45mm offset on a 1.5" drop and i only scrape when there is people sitting in the back and i hit a bump, besides that i have no problems whatsoever

I know one guy who had 17x7 rims with +38mm offset and 215/45/17 tires, it would rub in back when he was going over bump with people in back seat.

With 18x7.5, +42mm offset, 225/40/18 tire you might get same thing.

Comparing to that guy you moved rims 4mm inside with +42mm offset, but you move edge of rim 6.35mm out with 7.5" width of rim, so basically your rim will be 2.35mm further out than a guy that I was talking earlier.

i got 215/35/18...and i never rub even with five ppl in the car rolling liek mexicans ....im dropped 2inches with eibach sportlines and tokico shocks also....i guess 225 may be too wide and rub at times.....

hi, on my 02 V6 coupe, i just installed 215/50/17 tires on 17x7 rims with +40 (offset) with a 1.5 " drop, and my tires rub both front and rear when i go over bumps and when i corner hard. now i have to look for a body shop to roll my fenders lips in the rear. i'm not sure what i can do in the front, since it has that plastic inner fender thing... any suggestions? thnx

basically the tire hits the top part of the fender. If you look under your rear fender, you will see a lip.

it looks like this L

basically the bottom part of that hits the tire

kayotik on my car the part that was rubbing was the lip from the bumper and after letting it rub for a while now it doesnt do it so also check the lip on you bumper too. becareful when you dremel that area because right in the middle is where there are some spotwelds and you dont want to take those off thats why is better to have them roll.

Get some Koni Yellow struts, they are super stiff. You wont rub with those. I have 225/40-18 (40 offset) with Koni Yellows and CT springs, I have never rubbed
