    I have ET42 and run 225 x 40 x 18 and am lower than sport with no problems.Almost the same rolling radius too, so the speedo is still ok

    Will that size be all right with ET43?

    the difference between ET42 and ET43 is the wheel will sit 1mm further in

    the differences in tyre profile can be as much as 5-10mm depending on the shape of the sidewall etc so the offset difference will be fine!
