Sorry to hijack this thread but I have a question.

I'm going from 18x8.5 wheel with 255/35/18 tire, to a 18x9.5 wheel and 255/35/18 tire.

Will the tire be more stretched/flat and give more rear clearance and increased wheel gap in the rear? I only have a half an inch of gap now and I was hoping to get a tiny bit more gap without any negative side effects.

Conversely. If I go from a 225/45/18 to a 235/40/18 tire would I have less gap because the tire would be less stretched?
