Looking for flush look

I just picked up a set of the style 400 18Ē rims and Iím looking for tires. Iím wanting something with a shorter sidewalk but not super low profile. The guy I bought them from suggested 225/45 r18 but reading through the forums I see some people suggesting 245 for a wider tireówould those fit? The offset is also 2mm (I think) more than my stock wheels. I want to get spacers put on when I get the wheels set and put onto the car but Iím not sure what size Iíll need for a flush look. Nothing super aggressive but mostly flush with the fenders. Any suggestions would be great!

Are you lowered?

Are the 400s 18x8 square or staggered?

245/40/18 could work.

If you are square with those wheels (18x8 et34) you can run a 10mm spacer up front and 15mm spacer out back.

Agree with above poster- spacers for front you'll want 10-12 and for the rear 15

They are a square set up. Not lowered but possibly springs in the future.
