how would 18x8.5 et 25et front work w 225/40 tires?

I do not want to start messing w/ my camber now YET.
so I would need insight from you guys.
ideal wheel I am looking at is
18"
8.5 et25 (w/ 225/40/18)
10 et35 or et30 (w/ 255/35/18)

I am dropped on KW but not slammed, *stock camber at gap is about 1-2 finger.

would minor fender roll help the fitment?
or just forget about this wheel?
thanks guys.

Go with et30 rear. You MIGHT need a slight fender roll front and rear though.

I ran a 10.5 rear et30 with 265/30 with a slight roll and only rubbed on big bumps. Cars is also lowered all the way in the rear on v2's.

8.5 et25 front will fit easily with 225/40/18

Here is one with 8.5 et 22 and 245/40 tyres

It will match the front better.
