I am looking to go as wide of a rim that will fit and as "meaty" of a tire as possible that will fit.
The largest you can go without fender mods would be 18x8.5+40 offset or higher. Tires would be 245/45/18 so your speedo isnt off. For reference I have 17x8+35 Enkei PF01's w/ 245/45/17 and I have no fender mods. PM for more info. Sorry for cluttering this awesome thread guys!

Depends on the offset but I honestly have no clue but I would guess you would at least need some camber bolts and a roll.

Dayum those are meaty looking! With all that tire and AWD I bet you don't even need brakes anymore, just coast it down and let the rolling resistance do the work lol.

When I mold in the fender flares, I am thinking about trying to bump to 305 just for kicks.

Pretty sure those 295/35s are going to be a bit too tall. You might want to look into getting 295/30s. You can compare tire sizings on 1010tire.com.

Also I just got back from afghan land yesterday
