    I've been running these tires for about 4k kms on my standard S3 rims. They are fantastic. I want to purchase some new rims to spruce the car up a little. Is it ok to put this tires on an 8 inch rim? The rims they have been on are 7.5 inches. Thanks

    If you are using 225 40 18 tyres then you can use those tyres upto 9J rims.

    As said they will be fine. BMW use the same size tyre on the front of the 3 series M sport models with 8J wide wheels...

    I'd agree...these are excellent tyres.

    I bought a set for wet weather and winter use,to replace the Toyo R1R's I had for our short summer.

    Considering what they have to deal with in terms of power and torque,the grip they have is superb on a wet road,and whilst they don't have the R1Rs grip on a dry road,they really arent bad there either.
