bigger rims

im lookin into getting some new rims. Im thinkin of getting 18's, with 225/40 tires. Well my question is, will the rims+tires raise up the car a little? If so, how much?

Wheel gap isn't too bad. Body kit makes it look a bit lower in my opinion.

yeah, but after you lower it, it looks so much better. I had the kam kit for a while now, and thought it already looked good without a drop. But after i dropped it, i was glad I did.
