18X9 or 18X8.5s are good sizes for a v6

I've got 18x9 and 18x10 and I'm going to put 275/35/18 on the front and 285/35/18 on the back.

Re: Tire size?

for 05+ it seems 19's or 20's fit good, 18s look a bit small due to the big sidewall the tire has.

That doesn't matter. I have 20" and I plan on dropping. Its mostly about your tire height over rim size. With xxx/35/19or20 you'll fit fine with a drop

I understand. I thought that you thought that you couldn't put 20s if you wanted to lower it.
