Need help with my wheels and tires pick.

1. I'm gonna go with S-tech Springs & Koni Yellow Shocks(front n rear)+ HFP Kit. btw when they say (each) does that mean I have to buy 2front & 2Rear? http://www.tirerack.com/suspension/S...lar=&brand=all

2. These are the wheels I'm going to buy.
Bolt Pattern: 5x114.3
Wheel Size: 18x7.5
Offset: 45
http://www.wheelmax.com/product.asp?ProdId=17298

Now I need some good all season tires that will look nice on them. I need to make sure the tires won't touch the inside but still look nice. What size do you guys recommend? btw how much does S-tech Spring & Koni Yellow drop?

Sorry I'm kinda new at this.

s-tech springs drop 1.3 inches in the rear and 1.8 in the front.
with the koni yellows, you could probably drop another half inch or so.
and you should get 225/40/18 for tire size.
hope this helps.

thanks you, one more question.. I live in a snow state lol.. is that going to affect anything? am I gonna get stuck in the snow lol?
also can I just use my 05 stock shocks with S-tech since my stock shocks aren't dead yet? Isn't S-tech front 2.0 and rear 1.2?

Tirerack already has the needed number of shocks in the quantity pull down menu. One FL, One FR and Two rear.
