Need help What size are you guy's using on your 18's? Sorry probably been asked.

My rear tire's are 255/35-18 and and I need to go smaller without rolling the fender's. But I want to retain the look should I go 245/35-18 or something else????????? The front is 225/40-18

What size wheels do you have?
If they are same sizes all round, you can always run 225/40/18 at the rear as well or run 235/40/18 all round...
However I don't think you'll have any problems running 255/35/18..My friend has 265/35/18 and no rubbing at all on his sedan...
