hi I'm trying to fit 18's to my 92 Eb Fairmont with standard ride height but worried bout the ball joint clearance. there is bout 3mm of clearance will the ball joint scrub the tires? the rims tires are 235 40 18. will the clearance change as tire warms?

i am running 245/35/19's on mine and had to take the grease nipple out of the top ball joint for clearence. i am yet to notice if the tire hits the cuphead bolts i replaced the nipples with but haven't heard them hit, even at highway speeds
