Hi its the profile that will give you protection and not the width,you need some give in the sidewall of the tyre. Its a fine line between looks and comfort but i would recommend the 45 minimal for comfort and still looks a low profile, 50 would look like balloons and may rub if you have lowered suspension especially if you have a 235/50 18 so it has to be 225/45 18 as jimmyjames recommends and thats what i run on my velle,but im a old git and gone for the comfort and practicality of 18s.LOL:
My van is lowered 50mm. I got 18x8.5 with 35et. I run 225/40/18 at the moment which has a tiny bit of stretch. But next time im going for 225/45/18. Its a lwb and with the 40 profile i feel they wheels and tyres dont fill the arches enough. Im not saying this is what you have to do though. Everyone likes different.
Been offered some BBS RG043 wheels 8Jx16H2ET35 other number 1690 and 441601025k have found out that they are 5x112 so they will fit my van but does anyone know where I can find the load rating for these?
Thanks for any help A:
