picked up a set of h&r race springs and i'm going to pair them with bilstein shocks.

also going with 18x9.5 v710's all the way around with 255/35-18 tires. <- any objections or suggestions on that tire size?

lol bro 255s will never fit up front if your even considering 19's i hope roads near your house are like glass i bent a rim 2 weeks ago and i'm running 18s with 225/40s on it and still bent it. i think you would be much happier with 18s i got the same suspension on my car h&r race springs bilstein race struts the ride is very stiff and with 19s man just my 2 cents from my exp bent rims suck!

doh misread ya 18's good choice remember that suspension is gonna have more neg camber so your gonna eat up front tires faster. larger tire larger bill to replace to get 255s to fit i'm almost 100% sure your gonna need some mods i'd go with least 2xx/40/18 for fronts bent rims suck

i just want the tire to go to about the edge (or a tiny bit less) then the edge of the 9.5" rim. looks like the 235 would do that. would it rub with 235's? what do you think would rub? the inside of the tire or the fenders?

plans changed directions- just ordered koni adjustable shocks, still pairing them with h&r race springs.

still not sure if or where 18x9.5 rims would rub with a 235 tire.... please help guys. not sure what offset to buy either.
