Looking for Ideas on Rim and Tire Size. What Will Fit Stock

I have a 2006 LS 2 door looking to upgrade a little. I want probably an 18" rim just not sure how wide and how tall of a tire i can go without rubbing. I looked in the section of setups but its hard to tell if some are stock or cut. I plan to leave the coils alone.

If your not lowering the car get 19s with a 35 series tire. I have 18s with a 40 series and there is still a pretty big gap but I'm lowering it tomorrow so it's all good. Iv seen a co alt tuck 20s so you could try that. But t least 19s

18'', then lower. 19''-20'' is too much imo... Lower it if you want a nice looking cobalt. Otherwise it is just a 4x4 with rims haha

Still not a fan of the drop on 16". Definately getting 17's soon! Or, you could do like a Honda owner and get 17 in back and 16 in front!

I think 20s is to much. I was just saying I have seen it. 19s with no drop wouldn't be bad. As for me I have 18s and getting dropped right now

^You'll feel and see a big difference once dropped, no more boat feeling haha

Problem is if you go with 19'' or 20'', you can't drop it that much without streching tires because of rubbing. Bboy have 18'' with 24 offset and it rubbed in the back with a 2,5'' drop, so I let you guess what will happen with 19'' or 20'' haha

Yea I noticed a difference. I'm getting it aligned tomorrow anvil put the 18s back on after that. The ride so far isn't bad, kind of bouncy I think. But that's expected

I was hoping i can go into an 18" rim and get a tire that would still fill the wheel well up without rubbing.

18 with a 50 series might do it. Mine is a 40 series and there was still quite a bit if room. It would have to be 50 or higher and that would look dumb. IMO
