Tire size help

I just bought esr sr08
Front: 18x8.5 +30 offset
Rear: 18x9.5 +35 offset

I'm willing to roll the fenders and will be installing coilovers in spring and doing a minor drop of probably and inch n half. But what are you guys with similar set ups? I would like to run a 255 or wider in the rear if it's possible.

255's in the rear is not possible without rubbing. I would say 215's (front) and 235's (rear)

False. Shave the rear bumper tabs and hard roll

True. Buddy said all he wanted to do was a roll... you can't fit 255's without a pull and camber

I fit 255/35/18 with 1 degree of camber, lowered to tire height (no gap), and a hard roll. Rubs the tab which I'm going to shave.


Though I suppose he didn't say he was willing to shave so you're correct.

Thanks for the responses,

So If I do a hard roll in all around this could work?
225/40/18
245/40/18

I would do a pull but I'm not sure how. I'm going to be renting an eastwood fender roller to do the rolling. But I'm not looking to run camber, since I the 2jzgte swap could be happening in spring and want as much rubber as possible on the ground.
