keep the diameter around 26" since your going with a 4/5 drop.

I ran 235/45/17 and didnt rub at all with a 5.5 inch drop up front.

I will look today for some rubber and see what I can find for price....will the 235/45/18 work and not allow my wheels to stick out. I want the lip to be protected a little....I have 18x9 for the front and 18x10 for the back...???
