I have the same car, a 2013, with the 18x8 polished aluminum Pony package wheels. I've been researching tires and will be going with B.F. Goodrich tires. The specifications on B.F. Goodrich's site for the tires I'm looking at say I can go with the following:

235/50/18 - Stock
245/45/18
255/45/18

The 255/45/18 tires are the ones I'm interested in. Whatever tire you're interested in, go to the manufacturers website and refer to the manufacturers specifications for your size wheel (18x8).

I've already been there and done that. I researched the daylights out of tires and my decision was to buy the Cooper Zeon RS3-A's and I love them. Original Pirelli's lasted 24,000 miles. I now have a total of 42,000 miles and the Zeon's are hardly showing any wear. They will easily waaay outlast the Pirellis. I think they are quieter and grip better too. Absolutely better wet than the Pirelli's.

That's a great calculator and I love the simulator for the visual as well. The only thing missing is the width for the wheel, but the rest of the info is excellent. I think the OP is trying to find out what tires will fit his 18x8 wheels. Thanks for the heads up

The tire calculator combined with tirerack.com should give him all the answers he needs. I have always used the two to get the perfect tires for my needs.

Good luck OP!

Not looking to jack this thread but I'm pricing some Yokohoma 19 winter tread for around $850 installed. Good deal?
