225/40/18, you might be able to squeeze the 235's in there, but best bet is to try and have a tire of each size mounted and see how they fit...

225s are too small. 235s will fit best but with that offset you should be fine with 245s as well. 255s if you're open to fender mods.

Thanks for those replies, someone else I know recommended I go with 245/35/18. Do you think there will be any issues?

Your springs have too much drop for 245/35R18 without fender modification in the rear. Your choices are:

225/40R18 or 235/35R18 without changing fenders
245/35R18 if you roll your rear fenders
255/35R18 if you roll front and rear fenders

I would strongly recommend avoiding other sizes not listed above. Sizes like 245/40R18 are too tall for your car.

Thanks Mosc. Comparing prices from 235/35/18 to 245/35/18 and fitment issues, I think i'll go with the 235/35/18
