What size is best??

My wife bought me some alloys for xmas.A:
I need to know what size tyre would be best without fouling the body.
Wheels are: 8x18 offset 45.
Van has a 60mm drop.

Should i go for 245 40 18 or 235 40 18?


Cheers

40 profile tend to be the cheapest out of all the sizes - more common (OE and 'tuner'), but the rolling circumference is smaller than standard 195/70r15. Your big shiny alloys with your new tyres will look smaller than your old steels!! :eek::eek:

Stick with the sizes you've mentioned, or the 225/45r18 as the ride comfort is much better (225/45r18 has a bigger sidewall height than 235/40r18).

I'd be much more inclined to go 235/245 as comfort is fairly limited on 225/40's

I am in the process of changing tyres and trying to get whole van on 245's!
