    Vauxhall states 225/45 in the brochures, and 225/45 will give more comfort than 40's with the slightly larger sidewall.

    Yep 225/45/18 bud. That's what I've just put on and what vauxhall recommend.

    Not forgetting the 235/40/18's which are an excellent compromise between the two

    I had 225/40/18's on mine, no problems what so ever. Much cheaper too - which is why i had them. Also had the 235/40's and they were better still.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
