      Wow. 35 series tires. Better set 4C to comfort or you'll feel every pebble in your tailbone!!!! (or your pocketbook when you get a bent rim!!)

      Enjoy the ride. Must handle like a monster!

      A 35 is not a 40, it WILL rub badly and may not work at all

      Why would a 35 rub more than a 40? Wouldn't it have a thinner sidewall?

      It's all in the relationship with the sidewall height
      Here's a comparison site, go play...

      It's a dumb size for an R and compared to stock, it's actually smaller.
      But, you know how much room inside the wheel wells you have to play with, not much at all and 1/4" difference can make or break you in an R

      about 3 weeks i know if they rub the car
      i had already modified the steering bumps the turning circle is now gigantic butt its ideal with the 245 tires

      look @ this topic
      http://forums.swedespeed.com/showthr...d-15mm-Spacers

      245-40-18 with 10 mm spacers @ the front and 15 mm @ the rear and tyre rub @ the rear fender with load
      i have 245-35-18 and dont use spacer so the tyres will fit on my V70 without tyre rub
