18x9.5 + 22 squared best tire set up -E92

my next set up wheels will most likely be 18x9.5 +22 (if I get what I have in mind now)

I want to get the biggest tire fitment without rubbing issues - may begin tracking every now and then...

I currently sit -2.3 camber rear and stock front, no fender work
am willing to roll the fenders....

My assumption for fitment would be

Hankook RS3 fitment of 235/40/18 and 265/35/18

OR would I be able to fit in

Toyo T1 Sport 245/35/18 and 275/30/18

maybe a bit more rear camber?
would I need front camber with the Toyo set up?


I would love to do the Hankook RS3 in 245/40/18 and 275/35/18 but that shyt wont work without a lot more fender work

Front might work and rear might work with EXTENSIVE rolling and pulling.

18x9.5 et22 square with 265 up front. I will be running that up front when the new apex's come out. I will be coming from 18x10 et25 up front and I know they will fit perfectly. I also have rolled/pulled/re-position bumper bolts haha. You just really got to roll front and rear, get the wheels and then kind of estimate space.

EDIT: I know you will do 245 up front, just mentioned my future setup for reference.

with which tire are you referring to? toyo t1 sport and hankook rs3 are different as far as fitment...

would the toyo 245/35/18 and 275/30/18 fit better or worse than rs3 235/40/18 and 265/35/18
