Hi guys

I am from the UK, so lots of pot holes over this way.

I wanna go for a tyre that will look good but also be safe on the roads.

I was originally looking at 225/40/18, but not sure if that's too much stretch. However I would prefer going with it due to the price, it's a lot cheaper.

What do you guys reckon?

Also, do you think I'll get away with just a roll on the fenders, or will I need to pull them.

Oh and lastly, do I need a camber kit as well, or can that come at a later stage?

Thanks Steve :)

Hi guys

I am now very worried that the wheels won't fit. When I test fitted the wheels onto the car without the tyres, they stick out a good inch from the fender. Will I need to run a camber kit to tuck them enough?

Also, I went for 235/40/18 Falken ZIEX 912's. Wanted a mild stretch.

I am scared that once I put the tyres on and they don't fit that i won't be able to take the wheels back cos they're used.

What's your views guys? :)

how low are you and do you rub? It depends what tires and offsets you have..
Lowered on the facelift type s wheels, 17x7.5 ET55 with 225/45/17 tyres.

It's pretty slammed, I'll get a pic at some point.

Another thing, I feel a wiggle from the rear when I go over a bump. Would this be the bigger tyres taking the hit from bumps due to the bigger profile? Or is it something to do with the rear tow from lowering?

Hi guys,

I test fitted the wheels without tyres, to see what kind of clearance I have got, the results are below...





This is how low she stands at the moment...



Final thoughts?

(ps. I already have the tyres, below...)
