Default Just bought Works Emos KAI 18x8.5 with a +37 what tires?

So again Work Emotions 18x8.5 +37 offset.

I am clueless is to what tires i should go with on my 02 rex without considerable rubbing issues.

I am running -1.7 in the rear. I'm on SPT springs (saggy in the rear) which will probably be traded out for RCE yellows by the time they go on.

I will be getting the front/rear rolled (not pulled) very flush before they go on.
With that being said, with the size and offset i was think a 235 tire (235 Kumho MX)?

I want a 245. But will it fit without major rubbing?

Thanks in advance.
Anthony

Oh, here is pics of the current drop for reference.

not sure how much this helps buuuut....

I have 18x8 +48 w/ a 235/40 tire that has rubber through the front fender liner/splash guards to the bare metal. I am on coilovers, but honestly they are not even that low. I have not messed with the camber settings though which would probably help out. From what it looks like your rears are rather low, as you said with the saggy butt syndrome.

EDIT: 235's on an 8.5 would not necessarily be stretched but I would want to rock a 245 or a 255 if you could make it fit if I were you.

Yea thanks man. I was wanted a 245.....hate the stretched look.
If i can get away with a 235 and a good rolling of the fenders i might do that.

More than likely i will replace the springs to a RCE yellow and get camber bolts for the rear just in case.

Hmm hate to have to roll and pull.
