    Default Wheel size advice

    Am looking for some advice....
    A couple of years ago I lowered the wifes 03 CDXI - not sure how much as I didn't measure it before.
    Is currently sitting on factory 16" alloys on 215/55/R16's and she wants to go larger (no pun intended)

    I have found 2 sets of cool 18" 2nd hand wheels with the same stud pattern but am worried these might rub or look stupid.

    Measurements from the arch to the centre of the hub are
    rear 315mm with 5mm of tyre in the guard
    front 335mm with 20mm gap to the tyre.

    It is much easier if you could tell what the tire size is on the 18".
    ex. 225-40/18, 235-40/18, 245-40/18

    Thanks Hummelshøj... I have just made a new post with wheel and tyre details of some new ones I have found (i forgot about this post)

    Jon1.8SRI your car looks awesome with that setup!!!!! what is the ride like ?... I have read some reports on this site that 19's tramline a bit....my wife drives it everyday so it needs to be comfortable, but i don't want big gaps between arch and tyre.

    Have found out from spring manufaturer that its sitting 30mm lower than factory.
