I just got some saleen 18x9 for the front and 18 x 10's for the rear. What is the best tire size for this combo. Gonna be getting nittos of some type, either nt-05 or the 555. Is a 40 or 45 sidewall better? Since so many have saleens I figure someone already knows the perfect combo.

You can also do a 295/35 on the rear or a 305/35. The 305 is going to be taller tho and might rub a tad if you're lowered

This is what I would recommend. I wouldn't run a 30-series out back, too short imo.

I run 245/40/18 Kumho Ecsta MX's on 18x9 saleens and 305/35/18 Mickey Thompson drag radials on 18x10 saleens. Lowered on Ford Racing C springs. zero rubbing at all.
