should i get a 215/40/18 profile???

hey guys i just finished installing my Enjei PF-01's on my car. They are rolling on Pirelli PZero Nero All seasons at a 215/35/18 profile. They look really sexy
My question is if i should get a bigger profile for my rims on my 5th gen SH? Im thinking like a 215/40/18... i really dont know this is my first set of rims in tires EVER!!! According to Tire Rack i should have the 215/40/18's installed but every tire shop ive been to so far says that the recommended size is 215/35/18... i dont know what to do... i want ride comfort and performance and i dont want to be riding on pure rim either...:(
Also im planning to drop my car about one inch in the future. would the 215/40/18 rub? im running a 45mm offset too
Please help! thanks

IMO 18's look bad on a lude, unfortunately I have 18's on my lude and I dont like it, but I have 225/40/18 tires and they rub a little bit in the back when I am driving around a corner pretty hard, nothing too big really.
