Tire Size Help RPF1 18"

Hey guys can someone please give me a recco on tire sizes for my Enkei RPF1's in F 18x9 +35 R 18x10 +38. I'll be on BC BR coils.

Thanks!

What's your alignment at and how low are you?

Assuming you want to do the least amount of work without stretching tires, I'll recommend 225/40/18 for the front and 255/35/18 in the rear. You can get by with these sizes by rolling your fenders flat and adding camber if necessary.

Thank you, I'm working with Tarrance at Intrack tires here in NyC and he said he'd work on figuring out a good tire size, but since we're all is owners here I thought I'd ask for your guys' expertise. I'm going to be on BC BR Coilovers, will be having the coils installed first, after a few days when they settle we'll get the alignement, fender roll, wheels and tires on, helps a ton to know reccmnd tire sizes for this, thanks again. I read some other folks who were rubbing on 255 in the rear, but I don't plan to go extremely low or go for a hellaflush/cambercentric look, also going for an all season tire if anyone has any recco's on those
