I have already taken out the driverside fender and had to go to work and put it all back together so I never got the passenger side, and I've had so many electrical problems its not even funny , yeah Its prolly just my work cuz i had to rush to do it cuz I had to go to work , but I'm really not wanting to do the passenger side cuz thats a lot of relocating so if I dont have to I dont want to , but I do want to lay frame, If im like a half inch or so from laying frame that will work .. but neway if I do have to take out that fenderwell, how long should I expect and is there ne easy way out of it? like maybe some type of harness made to expand it or nething lol? seriously tho , ne help is needed I'm ready to put that bitch on the ground so I need to know ..

215/35/18-You will lay but I'm not sure if it will work because of the rim being 8.5 wide. Plus you run a huge chance of bending a rim
225/35/18-Lots have said it will work but then there have been the few where it didn't lay.
225/40/18-Won't lay but will be close and will have less of a chance of bending a rim than the 35 series tires.
