Dare i say
Start with tyres with a better load rate
As 225 40 18s are too low

What weight is your heighest axle we can give an alternative then
Also what offset and width wheels do you have .

Hang on a minute

you have told the OP 48-50 without even asking him to check the max pressures on his side walls
Some are 44 some are 50 max pressure
He better check first .
