Hope that helps!
Thanks for your response, I am not as worried about the rears as to the fronts. I know the front tire clearance even with 225's is running extremely closely to the struts. How would 235's fare with OEM Suspension + 8.5IN ET45 235/40/18's?

However today, I went to a car meet/luncheon and I saw some guy running Breyton 18" 7.5IN 265's in the Fronts! I was absolutely shocked that he was rocking that wide of rubber in the front.

Unfortunately I did not get the chance in meeting him, so I wasn't able to discuss what he had done. But the fenders look rolled, and his ride height looked stock to me.
