I am looking at some aftermarket rims and tires. 18 inch rims with Dunlop SP9000 z-rated tires that are 245/40 18 front and 275/35 18 rear. Are these tires going to be too large? Will i occur any rubbing? And in every ones opinion what kind of difference will i notice in the ride of the car. I have the stock tires that came with the car right now.
THANKS very much for any information.

the tires are the right size..... it not the tires that will cause the rubbing..... is the offset of the wheels....... go with the offset ET 25 all around (18inch by 8 1/2 front) (18inch by 91/2 rear) and you will have no problem..... good luck......
