I've got 225/40/18 with a 1.8" drop...No rubbing at all unless I turn the whell all the way to the right or left, then it rubs alil bit. I'd say to w/ 225's definately, it gives the rims more protection

Also, 40 series tires are Much better ride wise and for road noise. I had 35's before my 40's and they were a rougher ride and the loud road noise got annoying sometimes
