I drive the car within a 5mile radius because frankly it is to dangerous to take anywhere else, got a Daily for every day driving. I talked to PIA about more camber and lowering it. I just asked what was the smallest tire they think I could get and went with it. Didnt think it would be this crazy. I bought these to test fit for the XD9's I ordered which are 18x10 +18.

Would luv too but also need to fit them. Im on coils with camber plates and i know ima need a roll.

The 245/40 would give me a 1/4 sidewall higher then stock and the 245/35 would be a lil less then a 1/2 then stock. So a 3.37 inch side wall to be exact.

I know a more sidewall is better but is to much any better??

+35 is 15mm easier to fit in the fenders....

...that said you're going to have a pretty hard time fitting 18x8.25 +35 with a reasonable sized tire on a wagon without roll+pull+camber.

defently lower it a little bit more + camber would look nice.
