I'm mainly intersted becuase there are a couple decent offers on EBay for 18x9 rims with 275/35/18's. I'm currently running 225/60/15's(bleh) and when wheel locked up front there isn't much room to spare. I figured they'd rub for sure with that size with out a little extra work.

im not sure, i know on the 15s the factory size is a 205/65/15, and you have a 225/60 wich is..pretty close to same diameter, the 275/35s are about 3 millimeters taller than what come on Sallens....wow. but im sure as long as the wheels are the right offset there shouldn't be a real problem

theyll be ok as far as normal street use... if you crank the wheel real hard youll get some rubbing, but nothing as far as driving on the street. (thats with 265/35/18s on 18x9's)
