    Default Tyres for 18" rims

    Hi all,

    Getting lost in the search for alloys
    So as I understand I am looking for wheels: 5x110 ET35-45. However now I am also confused in terms of width!
    If I order 18" rims which are 8J (presume 8" wide), what size tyres will fit:

    • 225/40/18
    • 225/45/18
    • 235/40/18
    • 235/45/18

    So 225/40/18 or 225/45/18 will fit on the 8J wide wheel? Confused as I heard you might have to "stetch" tyres depending on tyre size and wheel width. Having seen alloys with tyres which have been stretched, its hideous! Not to mention the rims get kerbed much easier.
