It will likely be an issue given that a 235/45R18 is 1.8" taller overall in height.

Just make sure when you fit your tires you check for clearances. Turn the wheel both ways and jack up just the tire to compress the spring and dampener assembly. Just to recap I lowered the car 1.5” all around and everything is fine, but I still slow down for speed bumps in a turn lol

That was just to test fit it up and check. You can put these on the other way, but you have to do all 4, or so I’ve heard.
I’m not about to be the first to try it out though lol

Those are directional tires in which all 4 get installed going the same direction & which means front & rear on the same side unless you bust the tires & switch the direction vs asymmetrical tires which allows you to cross rotate tires.
