Coilover alignment and tire questions

I have an 04 GT vert. I just had UPR coilovers with Viking springs, KYB shocks/struts, and Eibach swaybars installed. Had the car aligned at about the stock height. Thinking am inch and a half front, inch in the rear. Car is not a DD, put about 7K a year throughout the summer hitting carshows and cruises. Also, have a friend who has his tires/wheels of his '11 GT 235/50/18. These will fit no problem , correct? Thanks

Ideally you would realign it for the new ride height. The S197 wheels have a different offset and will sit very sunken in when compared to stock SN95 wheels.
