I need some help finding the correct size tires for my new rims

They are; Front 18 x 9" - 24mm / Rear 18 x 10" - 22mm - 5 on 4.5. I'm doing the hub conversion and these are the rims I decided upon, I fully expect to have to put spacers on. Now to the fun part what size wheel spacers should I get, what size tire is recommended for the front to avoid rubbing, same with the rear but I would like the rear to be slightly taller then the front.

93 LX: 89 SC rear sway, Tokico drop kit, JBA headers,ported and polished Edle Brock intake,ported e7's, E303 cam, Cold air intake,75mm TB,03 Lmaf, TwEECed T4M0, smog pump & ac delete, under drive pulleys, msd 6a, 1.7 ratio roller rockers, electric fan, 3.27 trac lok, 5spd, aluminum drive shaft, digital cluster converted to analog and it works!

Spacers for what?? You will be nowhere near hitting anything but the Curbs and fenders. Scratch them off your list you won't need them.

Hit me up with an email @ thecustomwheelshop.com or my personal mail @ [email protected]

Give me all the specifics...The wheels you have spec'd out above are going to look wrong on the car. Thats my honest opinion. There might be a better wheel spec in the same wheel though. I can help you with that.
