Wheels-Tires What Are Some Alternate Tire Sizes You Have Run?

  1. I have 18 inch wheels front and back. Right now I have 255/35/18's up front. Saleen's came with that size and 265/35/18's also. I don't need a real sticky tire and I'm not a big fan of a wider tire up front since they seem to track road grooves. I never had that problem with the 245/45/17's on my old car. So I was thinking of 245/40/18's up front. Anyone ran these on a lowered car? Just wondering if they may be too tall.
  2. I like answering my own questions. Anyway I put 245/40/18's on and they fit fine. A little more ground clearance so I won't drag bottom so much but stance is still great. The sacrifice in width is negligible. I may replace the 315/30/18's on the back with some 275/35/18's when the time comes.
  3. Do the front tires look alright proportionally, when paired with the other size rears?
  4. It looks OK to me. I'll get some pictures and post them.
