This is the wrong section of the forum lol
I have XXR 527's, 18x8.75 +35F, 18.9.75 +20R
Tires are 225/40/18 front, 255/40/18 rear (Although I would recommend getting 245/35/18, which is what I'm going to do next).

No matter what tire you get I think you're gonna have to roll+pull the rear if you're gonna run any drop.

I'm running the same wheels on my 07 is250... specs are 18x8.75 et 35 and 18x9.75 et 20 with a 225/40/18 and 245/40/18. I put a 10mm spacer up front to bring it down to an et 25. With my drop I had to cut the front tabs, cut my front fender liners, pull the front fenders and roll the rear fenders and cut the tabs.
Alot of work but it looks great!

Check out my build thread:

^^ LOL dude, our mindset for modding is very similar!
I'll post here since I don't wanna put up a pic onto your build thread lol
Here's my car, you can kinda see what I mean by my rear tires are too fat
Gotta get smaller tires then I can lower the rear :/

Just go down to a 245/35/18 and you'll be perfect!
