For a 9.5 I wouldn't go any wider than a 225 and not taller than a 40 series. You might even consider a 215/40. You also have to consider tire brand, not all tires are the same width for example, falkens run narrow and federals tend to run wide. You will not get the same stretch from different manufacturers. Even consider a 35 series sidewall.

Hey All!

I'm very new and very lost about how the fitment of the tires would be on my car once I have it on. Here are the specs:

ESR SR01
18x9 +30 (Planning on wrapping them with 215/40 or 225/40)
18x10 +25 (Planning on wrapping them with 235/40 or 245/40)

I've gone through posts and loads of images, but I also noticed that some of the fitment shows a bit more rims than tires and some fits just nicely. My question is, I'm aimming for a more aggressive look, what size would be best with minimal of fender rolling or pulling needed? Thanks in advance for the help!

I did 215/35/18s on a 18x9.5. They road fine. I even did a day of track with them. LOL
