I got a good deal on some megan racing springs. the info on it is - Lower 2" front and 1.9" rear

- Springs rate - 250 Front and 230 Rear

my question is im running on rx8 wheels, should i stay with the 225/40/18 tires or can i go with 235/40/18?

i know in the 225/40 i wont have any issues, but if i go with 235/40 am i going to rub?

im not an expert but 225/40/18 is the safest to go with. After reading so much stuff on this forum on the proper tire. 225/40 is the best because from what I read, after a drop like that, you have less of a chance for it to rub. But again im not a expert on this topic, im just giving my opinion on what ive read over over the forum

That would be a very nice drop. Too low for me, but it would look great for your ride

yea i know i read a bunch of stuff, but i know boosthead ran megan racing and he said it wasnt a a 2 inch drop or 1.8 drop in the rear, thats why im wondering what should i do with tire wise. stick to 225 to be safe or get some 235's

IMO. and I bet what everyone else is gonna tell you. stick with 225 to be safe. But you go with whatever you want.
