All depends on the size of tyre, i think a 255 would rub, but a 225 wouldn't

Don't think the rears will, but you might need a spacer up front and I think they might jut out on the front anyway with the spacers. Why are you going for such a wide tyre up front? Steering will feel much heavier too. Imo the max. rim width for the fronts should be 8J

Not a fan of stretched tyres, think they look silly - but each to his own. I prefer having a bit of rim protection too

Personally yes I'd go for that for more balanced driving. Others prefer a square set-up. Really the biggest issue which you might have with the measurements you mentioned is whether the fronts will fit properly

I've got some 205/35/18 and 225/35/18 if you're interested, rears have some inside camber wear - but directional, so can be switched over

I've bought them already bud. 2 have already been delivered, waiting on the 215/40's now. Should hopefully come by the end of the week.

However, the finish isn't great and bubbles and flakes are starting to appear after only 3 months.
