I'm buying a set of Daytona 8.5 X 18's I figure I can run with 215 35 18 in the front and 235 40 18 in the rear. Anyone out there running anything similar? Any info would be great. It's alot of cash and I want to get it right. THANKS

Don't put a 215/35/18 on a 8.5" wide wheel. The tire will be super-stretched and the rim will have zero protection. In fact the 215 on an 8" wide wheel is pretty bad too; I have this setup and will be moving to a 225/35/18 or 235/35/18 as soon as I need new tires.
