    What size tyres are people running with 18s

    Well my spacers arrived today so did a quick trial fit and the rear tyres def need some stretch as stick out a bit I was wondering if people can post some pics my rears are 9s and the tyres on there at the mo are 265.

    Was thinking of running 245 is that ok for speed and cornering.

    There not great pictures and you can only see the rear in them (sorry all I have at the moment) but I hope these are some use to you.





    The first one just shows the shape of the tyre wall and the second two you can see where the tread stops compared to the lip of the tyre. Sorry there not great.

    Thanks, there is a downside to running such low profile tyres with that stretch mainly with pot holes and bad roads (the road to my house is a dirt track and it kills the lips of the rims when rocks catch it) but thats about it really. The ride is a bit firmer but thats expected when loosing the sidewall. But makes such a difference in the look of the car and the fir of the wheels.
