They run wide so the 225s will mount like 235s and 235s will mount like 245s. Obviously I want the 235/40s, I'm just wondering if it will rub. Hub-to-fender clearance in the front is 13.25" and rear is 13.5" on stock 225/45/17s. I think I can squeeze it without a roll (I'm lowered 1-1.2"). I'm 90% decided on 235/40/18 Federals since I would hate if I went for the narrower setup and I could have had more sidewall.
I'm running 225/40 on my current set up. They do run a little wide. Ran 225/40 on 9" it wasn't big of a stretch.

If you don't wanna stretch look into 245 or 255.
