Tire fitment please help...hi gary! :)

Im looking to order tires from tirerack but im not sure about the fitment.
What would be the best size for a 18x8.5 wheels on a dropped sedan (H&R Sport)??
Is 235/40/18 a bit too agressive?
Thanks,
Frank

235/40/18 should be perfect, but if you're super worried, 225/40/18 is fine

Agreed. With a lowered sedan, I'd try 225/40R18 first, then if you seem to have adequate clearance, go 235/40R18 next time you're due for tires.
