Re: need help with tire ?

A 265/35/18 is the best fit when you crunch the numbers, but a 275/35/18 will protect the rim and look better overall. It really wont be much taller and you wont notice any differences in the speedometer with in +/- 1 mph~

Definatly go with a 275/35/18 for a 9 inch wide 18in rim. for a 18x10 go with a 295 or a 305, do not go any smaller and go with a tire brand that is known to run wide aka nitto is NOT known to run wide.

I have falken 451's on the front of my car. I love the tires, they're good in rain, good in dry, and ive got about 40k miles on this set. I have 285/35-18s on an 18x9... the falkens run a size small, and the 285s fit perfectly on my wheel.
