Also, a lot of good looking cars up in this thread.
Firehawks run narrow and you can get by with 265/35 and will not rub...no rolling required.

Firehawks run narrow compared to other tires, if I decide to get another set once these are done I'll be going 275/35. If I were you I'd go 265/35.

Edit: picture for reference
Setup looks nice. Do you have issues with driving around CT with the 35s? I am in South Jersey and commute into NE Philly and the roads have been terrible. I just worry about having ample rubber to protect the wheel, but I'm starting to doubt 5mm will really make a difference.

Yea CT roads are no bueno either haha. Issues? Not really. Between the Yellows and steamroller low profile tires you get a lot more feedback from imperfections on the road so you will be avoiding potholes. Doesn't bother me much, completely tolerable for daily driving. The girlfriend complained at first though.. much more bounciness upstairs if you catch my drift.

I currently run Rota SS10 18x8.5 +44 with a 255 35 18 tire and I'm lowered on coils, the back will occasionally scrub the inside of the wheel well when the tires travel upwards on steep parking lots lol but really not issues, actually have room to put in a small space to bring closer to the fender.

I just want to see what people think of these wheels because I am stuck. I think if I went with the Rota's I would do 18x8.5 and if I went with WedsSport I would do 18x9.5. Any input would be great.
