18x8.5 TE37 Tires

I just bought a set of replica te37's, dont hate.
Im curious on what tire size I should run. The wheels ar 18x8.5 +35 square. I have lowered my car 1.5inches in the front and 2 in the rear -1.2 camber in the front and -2.5 in the rear. Here are some photos if it helps. Any suggestions?

225/40 or 245/35 depending on budget and desired look. 225s are a very common size, making them less expensive, and are very close to stock diameter(will raise your car 0.2").

245/35s are stock diameter, but are not as common of a size with only about 1/4 the tire choices, and they have an increase in cost.

Your wheels are going to look good on your car with either size tire!

Ive been looking at some 225/40 tires and most likely going to go with them, but do you know if all season tires or summers would make a difference in look as far as strech or arch?

225 on 8.5 is a mild stretch. IMO, it looks good.
I was looking at these tire. I actually got them for my 2016 dodge challenger and they hook up really well and gave it a meaty look of course due to me going from 245/45/20 to 295/50/20

Those run wide. I don't think they will look stretched much at all.

IMO, No way!

Guys run the 595 and seem to like them, though I have no personal experience with them. The 595 is available in a 215/40/18, if you want the stretched look. It is also OEM diameter and weighs a little less; both a good thing.

Cheap tires, like the lions, tend to have weak sidewalls, making them shit to drive and your wheels easier to damage. I would steer clear! lol

595 are very loud on the road. Just get a regular Hankook summer tire if you want something cheap. Nice wheels look like crap with off brand tires on them. This is also posted in the wrong subforum, you're in the marketplace!
