Wheels & Tires

I have 2014 GT with 19" wheels, I am thinking about dropping down to a 18" wheel, without lowering it, what will the difference be in the tire filling out the wheel well opening, right now I'm satisfied with the way it sits. I don't want it looking like a 4 wheel drive.

Thanks for your responses.

Assuming you maintain the same tire circumference so you don't need to tweak things to keep the speedo accurate (which would mean a higher sidewall aspect ratio)), it would fill it out the same. That being said, that's what I did for winter and the bigger sidewall definitely isn't as pleasing to the eyes for me anyway (or maybe it's just the Enkei wheels being silver that I don't like as much). I am looking forward to spring when I can put the Brembo shoes back on her but ultimately would like to find some 18s I like since there are more tire options on that diameter.

If you like the way it sits now, you aren't going to like it with an 18". Even if you get a bigger sidewall tire I don't think you'll like the look.

A consideration is tire price. I can't hardly find a bigger 18" tire for under $300.... And I don't think the standard 275/40's are tall enuff..... I think I'm gna wind up getting some staggered 19's..... Hope this helps a little. I'm gna lower it some and see how it looks then with the 18's....
