18x9.5 +40 245/40/18 on a lowered car

I'm posting this for others who have questions about wide tires. There are a few posts regarding wide tire sizes but not many running this aggressive without flares.

18x9.5 nt03 with Federal 595 rs-rr 245/40/18

-2.4 camber front and -1.8 camber rear

Enjoy the meat and I hope this helps someone in decision making.

This with a full set of rims and tires in the back, an easy 120lbs in the back. I've had passengers and cornered pretty hard testing this. My coils are on the softer side, so I might experience rubbing if gone to the max. I don't think I will ever load my car up like that however.

Back with an update.. There was some rubbing so I had to roll the fenders a little more, nothing too crazy. I'm happy to report after running it at the track rubbing is a non issue now.
