+1 on what has already been said. I abused the hell out of mine for several years and had no problems at all. Just do the service on it and you'll most likely be fine.

I've been running 18x8 et45 with spacers, putting it to et35 front and et37 rear. 225/40 tires and bilstein b8+h&r springs and zero rub. Needs to be said the bilsteins are very stiff, so i guess that...

Well your tire will move 10mm further out when going from et45 to et35. So short answer is you will rub more than you've done before. A little more camber will help but nothng crazy.

Lol, been there done that. Just wasn't sure why you suggested such a big tire being just fine for the op. If he would be going lower(as i thought he would) it would be trouble.

I ran 235/40 on 18x8 et45 with H&R springs+Bilsteins and had some slight rub. 245/40 is even taller, so don't suggest it's zero problems when lowered, unless you have very stiff shocks and springs.

I hope you ordered 245/35-18" and not 245/40-18", as you will run into big fitment problems if you plan on lowering (a must lol) the car. Oh and around et45 for the wheels unless you plan on huge...
