  20. Is anyone running 245/40r18 without a problem?

    Wheels & Tires
    I've recently picked up some split five spoke Cobalt SS wheels and they currently have 225/40r18 and they look tiny on my car so I want something with more meat on it. I just want to make sure I'm not going to have rubbing issues with this size. I've got a 06 aero combi. Thanks for the help.
