I've got the stock 18" sport square rims (style 397 8" front and back) - maybe I'll just try shoeing them with 245/40 non-run-flat rubber and see how that goes

Might buy you some rim protection from scuffing as well
The reason I'm considering this is because of the tires I want, the fronts stock size is out of stock until January.
There are 235/45/18, which is 26.3", OEM is 26".
The 245/40, I think, is 25.7".
I think I'll try the 235/45 that will fit just fine on the stock wheel.

BTW, I thought the rears on a stock staggered setup were 9" no?
