I have the Velox VX8s in 18s I run a 225/40/18...I also have the B+G springs that drop 1.6 give or take a few....KYB struts and not a scrub anywhere..the rear wheels tuck up nice and sweet looking...

a 35 is less rubber....my car is lowered using B+G springs and KYB struts...The B+G springs lowered it 1.6 is what they say...I think now that they have settled some its a little bit lower. It tucks the rear wheels great...I will see if I have a close up of the rear of the car....

The only difference is a slightly smaller sidewall between than the 225/40/18.

IIRC you can go any lowering spring setup with 18's, but for 19's you need either GC or bags.

I'm running Roush springs (1.8" ACTUAL DROP...not the 1.2" advertised drop) with 19" wheels wearing 225/35/19 tires.

NO RUBBING! :)
