Tire size for 18s.

What would be a good tire size for 18x9s? Without a lot of rubbing.

if they do, that's not the right size.
275/40/18 is ideal... that'll put you to a 26.6" diameter.

edit - the fronts may rub. with some work it won't though. i've never seen anyone with a sn95 not be able to fix a rubbing problem if they actually try to fix it be it the sway bar needs lowering via shorter endlinks or taking a hammer to the wheel well lining.

i got 275/40's on 18-9's and i just threw on 7/32" spacers up front and the rubbing is almost completely gone you can turn it just a few degrees short of all the way. the backs fine its just the damn sway bars.
