Best tire size on 18"

Ok im gonna be rolling on 18 x 7.5 this summer and i want to know what will be the best size to get for the tires
people so far suggested me 225/45r18 but ive heard that im gonna have a 1.39km/h difference (which is not so bad i guess)

go 225/40 18..... at 45 ur diameter becomes a little big, and at 40 the tyres look really good with the low profile look

225/40/18 would give a good compromise between low profile look and road noise and comfort.. i was running on those on my previous ride.. think about it!

yeah i would def do a 40 series on an 18, 45 would look a little bulky and stay on mostly 17's and 35 would up the risks of bending on and give a very harsh ride.

I ran 225/40-18 on my old 2004 WRX. Good tire size, anything thinner than 40 is apt to give you a bent rim.

Plus 225/40/18 is the exact same diameter as stock 205/50/17 so your car will love you for it.

Re: Best tire size on 18"

pics would be awesome of a sedan with 18s on it. I'm going to pull the trigger some time in the next few months, but would like to know what they will look like better than the on car pics on the tirerack site.
