    BFH mod and some fender rolling and you should be good.

    I run 315/30/18s on my car. It will be really tough to find 315 street tires with a 35 sidewall. If you want more options look into a 305.

    My rear wheels are 18x11. You won't be able to put a 335 on a 10.5 rim. You need the rim to be around 11.5-12.5 in width depending on the tire. Do you have an adjustable pan hard bar to help with centering your rear since you are lowered? I have these wheels and tires on my car with no mods (no BFH or fender rolling) and they do not rub. At the same time, a lot of that is due to the offsets of the wheels.

    Here are some pics

    I have a adj Panhard bar with lower control arms and relo brackets.

    I went to few tire shops and they say it could fit on 10.5
    The tire is to big. But as right now is the only option I have.

    Anyone running that tire on 10.5

    You also have to take into consideration tire brand. I don't think that all brands of tires; let's say a 305/35/18 will be the same width from one competitor to the next.

    2001camaroSS- What brand are you running and are you lowered?

    That's true.
    I belive that Goodyear and simitomo look are wider than other brands.

    Any thoughts on Michelin tires?

    I am lowered on Stranos/Bilsteins and the tires are Yokohama ADVAN Sports. They were not cheap and were roughly $1,400 but they were cheaper than the $1,600 Michelin P/S and had similar reviews.

    Please excuse my lack of knowledge on this BUT...I have a panhard bar but how do I tell if its the adjustable kind? Is there a bracket that is adjustable or is it something else?

    OP, sorry if you think I'm thread jacking you but I'm not intentionally. Just don't want to start a thread for one question.

    Adjustable is going to have a threaded portion of the bar that will lengthen or shorten the bar, along with a nut to lock the position. Non-adjustable will just be a solid bar.

    Yes. Adjustable allows you to recenter your rear after lowering.

    Sumitumos don't run wide, i've seen other brands run wider.
    Also like Aaron said 335 will be to much tire for a 10.5" rim, you'd want at least an 11" tire and that's minimum!
    A shop could probably get 335s seated but it's dangerous running them like that. Like said some brands run wider than others, I will tell you 315/30/18 is pretty damn close to the stock tire height.
    Michelin tires actually run wider than most and if can pick a set of those up i'd recommend them, Michelin makes great tires
