need some advise & opinions on what would be the best fit for my 18" X 9" rims, this is all 4.
questions like - should i stagger the tire sizes ?
- if so whats the widest that will fit on the back & front ?
- should i just go with same size all round ?
- and if so what would work best as far as width & side wall size ?
- whats the best brand for street/strip ?
thanks for your input

265/35/18's are perfect for 18x9's
if you had 18x10's i woulda staggered it with a 295/3x/18 but since u have 9's also in the rear why not run a spacer? same size all around will allow you to rotate tires as well.

Yep I have 265/35/18s all around and they fit perfect plus I can rotate, I would of gone with a 10" rear but the offest was retarded and it would of been a pain. Next time I might go 255/35/18s up front and 275 or 285/35/18s out back just for a bit of a staggered look.

I got the BFG Gforce KDs and they are sweet tires, deff the best I have had.

18 x 9, huh? 275mm width is the best fit for 9" wheels. To maintain stock height, 275/35/18 is the best. Some people have had rubbing issues up front with tires this wide, but keeping the same size at all 4 corners let's you rotate. I suppose you could go with a thin wheel spacer up front (depends on wheel offset) to solve any rubbing and a 1" spacer in the rear.

As far as brands, that depends on your budget. I just got Fuzions way cheap and they're rated in the top 10 by Tirerack. If $$ is not an issue, you can go with something like BFG KDW's or Michelin Pilots.
