    I have a set of sl63 18" alloys on my b5 1.9 tdi and on the front it has 225/45/18 and on the wheels and with the drop ov given it, looks suburb. However on the rear the wheels are like 8-9j and its on 235/45/18 but the car is looking more like a hot rod then slammed. How do I cure this?

    Change the rear tyres to match the front is the only way.

    Its not a quattro or any thing?

    Pics?

    I was told putting 205/40/18 on the rear would cure it?

    If I worked this out right.

    Tyre 225/45/18
    Side wall 123.75mm


    Tyre 235/45/18
    Side wall 129.25mm


    Tyre 205/40/18
    Side wall 122.4

    I'd match the rear tyre to the front.
    fitting a 205 on the rear will look even odder on 9j.

    Is the rear a 9j, 8j or 8.5j?

    On 18" wheels its recommended to fit 225/40/18.
