. . . 265/35r18 for $188 a tire which I can get on 18x9 easy. . . .
9" wheel is on the extreme narrow end of the range for that tire; yeah it will go on but it is not really what you want. Hankook*Ventus R-S3 (Version 2)
If you are buying wheels -- it it was my money I would buy the widest wheel that I can for the rules and clearance; and it sounds like 740weapon already has that all figured out for you.
