Default RE: Tire sizes

I have 295/35-18 in the rear... 265/35-18 in the front. For the front, the overall diameter does not matter, it's all about looks there.

They stick out a little bit, and kick up a lot of stones (lots of scratches on the side scoops... thankfully the scoops take 99% of the abuse... I don't see many new scratches anywhere else). Get the 295 in the rear FOR SURE, and if the 245 will fit well on the front (will probably look stretched) go for it... 265 is pretty safe though, looks good on the wheel.
