No, I had to remove my inner fenders with 225/40/18's And I'm sitting about 1/2" from laying up front because i'm sitting on my fenders, I need to notch the insides of them.

Also, how wide are the 18's that you want? Mine are 7.5. If you go with like a 7, you might be ok, you'll need a rim that has a 4.5bs on it, then you should clear the fender.

well, they are 18x8, and they are off of an infinity. they are the universal 5 lug, and the only reason that i am so apt. to get them is that the kid only wants like 300 for them. he lost his job.

I was told from AVTekk at Afterhours Fabrication that in order to lay out on 18's the tire size you should run is 215/35/18 or 225/35/18 if you go any bigger you have to lose the wheel wells!

Yea 235/40/18 is too tall. Go with 1 of the 2 sizes that SomethingDifferent listed.

They Won't look gay, but you better know your streets and know how to drive, because you hit a hole that you don't expect and you'll crush the rim. 215-35's have a very small sidewall, and if you don't know how to drive the truck properly with it that small, it'll bend the rim.

I don't know what the bolt pattern on an Infinity is, but I would bet money that the wheels don't bolt up. The universal bolt pattern is universal to FWD cars, not trucks. Even if they did bolt on, the backspacing will be WAY off.

A 225/35-18 is 24.2" tall so Id go with that over a 215/35..Supposedly a 24.5" tire will lay out while hitting the wheel wells.
