    Getting new tires

    Hey guys so I got my 18x9.5 rpf1 and am trying to decide which size tire to get. I see most people rubbing 255/35/18 and 265/35/18. I'm planning on rolling my rear fenders once when I my rce black springs.
    Since I'm only planning on dropping the car 1" should I go for the bigger tire 265/35/18? I'm going to order the continental dw.

    265's would fit good on a 9.5 inch wheel. I have a 9 inch wheel and 255's fit it perfect, so you could go a little wider and get a nice fitment.

    Thanks for the response ! I would still only need to roll the rears right? Nothing has to be done to my front fenders?

    I don't have 265's on my wheels, but with the 255's it is golden. I think there are a few members on here running 265's that didn't have to roll the front fenders, so hopefully they chime in. What is the offset of the wheels?

    18x9.5 +38. Yea I see more people running 255/35 so I might just go that route cuz i know it's a sure fit. But I do think the 265 would look a little better

    Post on this thread, as Torque monitors it and I think he has a similar set up as that. I would think you would need to roll the front and rear with a +38 offset on an 18x9.5 inch wheel with 265's. (He might be running 17's though I can't remember).
