You should go with a 235 all around. Or go with 18x10.5 or 11 in the rear if you want to go staggered.

You will most likely need a spacer to clear the strut.

I have 18x9.5 et35 front with hankook v12 size 235/40/18.
Im lowered with HR sport springs and have no problems. 2-3mm clearance to front struts.

If you have coilovers then you need spacers to clear struts.

You'll probably need a 5-7mm spacer to push it clear of your coilover - bottom locking collar.
