Depends what kind of look you're going for, if you want the stretched look then the first but if not I would rec. the second one. You can also run wider tires which will help with traction and performance. And if its not flush enough you could always throw a 5mm,spacer in there... Etc. Hope this helps! -Ted
And 235/40/18 and 265/35/18 shouldn't be a problem.
