Will these tires fit?

I've got fr500's I'm not sure if the fronts are 9" or 9.5" but I'm running 275/35/18 and one has wire showing and I found an awesome deal on some 235/40/18 will those be safe for my wheel or no?

I wouldn't run those if they were free. Smallest I would feel comfortable with is a 255

What about 245/45/18? That's a little better.

A little stretched but not horrible. Those must be 9.5" wide wheels, my 245s on my 9"s arent quite that stretched looking or the tires i have run a little wider. Be careful and you shouldnt have wheel damage, lol
