    i think they would work on the rims but i know that without tubbing the rear, they'll rub inside the wheel wells because i have 295's and they rub sometimes.

    I am running the same tire size on my car and I was told numerous times the largest tire we can put on is 315. I did a 315 for my drag radials and I had to make some modifications to the bump stop and the inner fender. Was not hard but I dont think you can put a 335.

    315/30-18 is already the limit... 335/35-18 is too wide, not to mention tall.
    I have 315s on the same size wheels... check signature for pix... I have them both in front and rear.

    99% sure it is a 315 for the widest you can run.

    if you have stock ride height you might be able to run 'em. 315's are the biggest i'd go with though. gonna have to roll the lip on the inside of the quarter panel. have a buddy move car forward and backward, while you take a wooden bat and let it roll between the tire and the quarter panel lip. may have to hack it down a bit so you can get it in there. you want to start on the skinny end and gradually move it toward you to the fat end. if you roll it slow enough the paint wont chip (at that time. . . .).

    I have a stock ride Z and did not have to roll the lip in at all. Just had to shave down the bump stop and pound in the inner wheel well.
