The car is a stock 87 gt.

Will 225/40/18 on 18x8 rims with a +35 offset fit without rubbing?

Thanx in advance.

Thanx for the responses guys.

They are 5x100, was just afraid they might rub on either the suspension or fenders.

Installed a set of four 17"wheels/tires today and they fit fine. Used 17 x 7.5"W Sport wheels 35mm offset. Goodyear Eagle 1 225 x 45 x 17 in back and 205 45 x17 front. A friend of mine installed 18" and had problems with the tires hitting the wheel wells in front but his car was lowered 1" . Not sure about 18" size wheels but if Raydar says that they fit he probably uses a specific formula.

No specific Formula. Just that 35mm seems to be the ideal offset for pre 88 Fieros, as long as the widths aren't absurd.
With a 225 section width, the shoulders of the tire are going to be in the same place on a 7" wheel as they will on an 8" wheel.

One more will they fit question.

The second set of rims I am considering are 17x7 +40mm offset. With these wheels I would likely go with 205/45/17 front and 215/45/17 back.

Are these likely to rub since the wheels would be closer to the suspension? I have heard 40mm works and also heard it doesn't.

What is the section width of your rear tire? How close are you to the springs/struts/perches?
40mm is close. It may depend on tire fitment whether it will rub or not.
