Thanks! I reread your post and see the rim specs are more aggressive and tire is wider

You realize these are sunk in farther, right? Not bashing, just want to make sure before you commit to tires too.

Well on my current setup, the fronts are flush and do rub with dips, however the rears with the Panspeed over fenders are sunken in with the 245/40/18. I figure going from 8.9 to 9.5 would make up for the offset with the new tire size.

Thanks for the visualization! Was trying to find a calculator like this!

You're going to be more sunk in now than before due to the offsets. Hopefully the calculator linked above showed you that.

Let me do the math for you:

Front will be 10mm inward from current setup
Rear will be 2.3mm inward from current setup

There, no more assuming, guessing, "looks like"...

Looking at some 18x9.5 +35 offset offset with 245/35r18 on stock suspension or Tien sport coil overs with about an inch drop. Weigh about 24lb before tire. Optionlab r716 for reference
