Default 235/40 Help

My 07 stock tires are well past the end of their life. Looking at getting 235/40's and putting 18x8 Konig Runlite's on them (+45 offset). I've been looking through the forums but I can't get a good answer on if I will rub or not with those tires. I've never bought tires that weren't stock size so this is all new to me. My suspension is stock right now but I am looking at getting some Eibach springs and wondering if that'll still be fine with those tires.

Currently looking at Pirelli P Zero a/s Plus... let me know if you have any other suggestions around that price range ($152.10/ea)

Also anyone have any previous experience with those Konig wheels?

I run 235/45/17 +45 which are the same overall diameter that you're looking to get. I needed to roll the rear fenders after I got lowering springs.

Pretty sure you'll be fine if you stick to stock suspension. Might rub a bit if you load the back end up with stuff/passengers.

not all 235 40 tires are the same width. I had 235/40/18 Super sports on Evo X wheels which were pretty wide and they rubbed slightly even with a roll and slight pull on stock springs. Now I'm on HTR ZIII's and there is less rubbing. Section width and tread width need to be compared also.
