What size would typically square out an 8.5" wheel? That's the look I'm going for.

Go with 245/40/18 on 18x8.5
It will be a perfect square!

What car do you have?

Just got these.

My car has been in the shop the last week in a half with a cracked oil feed inside of the pan, I think that takes priority then some stupid stance. The fronts and back do not rub at all so its no big deal until I have some spare time to adjust the coils and camber myself.
