18x9 18x10 rims with 255/45zr18 and 295/35zr18's and a 2 1/4" drop and I had no rubbing on the front, but the rear I would rub anytime it'd squat. So from takeoff or on a turn. I would roll your fenders if your using 18" rims and going lower than 1 3/4"'s.


Have fun^^.

I personally think a 2" drop on 18's is a little too much. I'm almost positive the back will rub. If you decide to go long tubes, then 2" will def be way too much. I have 1.25 drop and my headers scrape sometimes.
