Here is a pic of mine with that same setup minus rear LCA's. It looks ugly without bringing that wheel in. I had 235/40's and it didn't rub at all with a flat roll in the rear. Try not to roll the front if you haven't yet. If you have camber plates, you will be fine.
Already have Work XD9s 18x10 on there with 225s. These are going to be my winter wheels.

So... I need some tires - All season that can tolerate a small stretch and do well. I heard that the contis dont stretch at all- id like a Continental ExtremeContact DWS but the 245/40 says it will only fit 9.7 rim.

Probably going to go with the General Gmax AS03. Should I go with the 235/40 or 245/40?

Just thought I'd throw a few recent ones up.





Yes, I know I'm not riding super flush or hella stanced with tiny stretched out tires but I kinda like the more grown up stance with very little camber and a good amount of tire to cushion against any potholes or rocks while offroading.

For the guys running the 18x10 521's whats your tire size and did you just roll the fenders and dial in camber or did it require a pull?

I'm running some 245/45/17 tires and there's still a tiny bit of stretch. Thinking bout going to 255/40/17 for my next set of tires if I can find some.

You did damage trying to mount them? I have the same exact wheel and color. Took them to a shop that specializes in mounting custom wheels. They have the plastic guard that is supposed to protect your wheel while mounting and they still scratched the paint right off of mine. We have to face the fact that the paint is garbage. I'm powder coating mine, the way they should have been done to begin with.
