    Yeah, I just edited my post with the size. 245/40/18 is the way to go.

    I am going down to a 17x8 wheel to get 255 tires on. Other people have as similar set up to this, so I hope it works out.

    255-35-18 fit on the OEM Si/sport wheels, there are a few posts on FB with people running that size, tight but fits.

    Tires I would look at Nitto, Toyo, Falken and Hankook

    Looks good man! Is that stock height? And what were the final wheel and tire specs you went with?

    I am not sure, but I am running +40 offset and the wheels do stick out a hair. You might have to go with +45s like the TRMotorsport FF10 wheels.
