Just wondering if I could go with 18" rims with a 2"drop. I'm looking at 205/40/18. What you guys think?

More like 205/35/18.......You will also have to watch the offset..............It will def be too tight with 205/40 'cause of the drop...........

Peace...............

^^^Holllllllllller............
I think with your sexy svt you should be able to pull off a 205/40/18......Just 'cause you have the adjustable suspension so you could def custom fit the ride even if it rubs.............

Peace................

wheels are 18x7.5 velox vx8's

tires are 215/35/18 pirelli p7000

40mm offset... offset is calculated from the center of the wheel if you were to split it down the middle. if you go to tirerack.com you can see what offset is all about. they explain it pretty damn good on there.
