    I'd stick with what came from factory so as not to alter the rolling circumference and speedo accuracy

    That would disturb the rolling circumference... if you want it looking stretched then go for 215/40/18!

    why do you want a smaller profile? means a harsher ride, more chance of damage to tyre * rim from pot hoes and worse of all more arch gap?

    In that case, higher the suspension to create a larger gap between tyre and arch :laugh:

    Strange ....but it's probably me....I would of thought the 19's would of gone 40 instead of 35....and 18's 35 instead of 40.

    Oh well.....40 it is then.....

    If they are 7.5J 225/40/18 is the best tyre size for them

    You wanna have another look at those pics of my car with 18's on it, and then compare it to previous pics now having 19's - I'm looking people on the upper deck off buses in the eye!!! :beerchug:

    PS. I always had 225/40/18 on all my 18's cars - that tyre wall is a good size for cleaning :cool:
