18” wheels / tire setup to daily?

Wondering if anyone actually daily’s on 18” wheels? Currently I have 20x10 / 20x11 BFG Comp2 , But I was thinking of buying stickier tires for “Mexico” runs + some local autox. Event.. I know for drag MT S/S is what everyone uses for tracking (305/45/17) but it’s not recommended for street..

Or should I look at 19” anyone can help?

Other option is to replace the rears with 315/30/20? Only issue is I have 285/35/20 upfront not sure if that will work.

I don’t want to get 4 brand new tires as I just got the comp2

This is not entirely the same thing, but I have 18" wheels for snow tires. I do not like it. There is a ton of side wall flex. It might be the tall, soft tread, but I think it is more to due with side wall flex. I wish I had done at least 19".

I imagine it would be worse on a sticky summer tire.
