235/40R18 fits up front with no problem. We have had reports of rubbing with taller tires up front.

The minimum recommended rim width range for 265/35R18 is 9".

THANKS GARY

so i should not try to buy 265/35/18 for rear with 8.5 width the reason i wanted to try this is because i dont have enough funds to buy rims and tires and i really need tires and want wider tires than oem size for better traction!
