I spoke to David from Apex and I think I am going to go with 18x9.5 35 Fronts and 18x10 25 Rears. I under stand with the 35 offset in the front I need a spacer which I am fine. I was curious to see what tire sizes people are running on that setup.

Would 245/285 achieve what I want.


A 245/40/18 or 255/35/18 front tire and a 275/35/18 rear tire would work great for what you are looking for. A 285/30/18 could also work in the rear but it is a very short tire and may look odd compared to the taller front tire. A 285/35/18 rear tire is a little too tall and would need fender rolling to make work.

This car is using a 245/40/18 and 275/35/18 on an 18x9.5" ET35 and 18x10.5" ET27.
