I'm running 335/30/18 BFG Rival S for autocross on my 18x12 wheels and a very aggressive alignment with camber well over -2. No fitment issues.

I don't think 335/35/18 would fit

You can run R7 in a 255/35/18 and 335/30/18 on a 7.2 without issues.

I think dampers make a difference. I don't think there is any way they would fit on mine with JRZ RS Pro dampers. Obviously offset is important. I run 245/35 and 315/30 on my 18" with 5 lug swap.

I ran mine with JRZ Pro dampers and 18x10x13 wheels. No issues. You can also use 18x9x12...
