You should be somewhat okay with 18's and stock suspension, but if you're afraid of scraping then be sure to pull up on an angle for steep drive ways, watch for pot-holes and go over things like railroad tracks a little bit slower than normal.

try to avoid roads that you know you may scrap on while driving...ones with holes, dips
because I was going 40 on this one road and this one small dip made the front just drop straight into the road and i scraped

when entering driveways, other roads with a slight incline from the road you're coming off of...make sure you take it at an angle to avoid scraping the front directly. If it's too steep, you know you can't go there.

you don't always have to avoid some roads, just drive slower when you are at points where you may know you could scrap. thumbsup
