Question 285/40R18 VS 285/35R18 square set up

Hi Guys,
To fit to 18x10 wheels for a squared setup for best handling with good looks and not rub issues, what do you think it will be a better fit: 285/35R18 or 285/35R18 square set ups? Why?

A 285/35 is less than 27". Way to short a tire.

285/40R18 VS 285/35R18 square set up

285/35-18 is a 25.9" tire. That's what I have.

285/40-18 is a 27" tire.

From what I read on your replies, basically the 285/40 will be for good looks and the 285/35 for better handling.

For a S197 you don't want to go smaller than the stock size. A 285/35/18 is a SN95 size wheel. Not sure why you'd want to go so small...

Dunno but a 335 is a complete waste on his car. All he needs is a good 275 honestly.
