    Default quick tyre size query

    just a quicky guys, i need 2 new boots, they are 225 45 18 at the minute, but would i be ok to go 225 40 18 on front and 225 45 18 on the rear?

    40s are cheaper and can get a better quality tyre for the cash

    cheers in advance

    Yes it would be ok as long as they are the same size on the axle ie not one side 225/40 and the other 225/45

    Word of warning though, they look a little silly as they really look too small but i ran 225/40 with no problems. You could also fit 235/40/18 and they look much better.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    so what would you guys do, theres going to be 225 45s on the back regardless, should i just go 45 on front or swap to 235 40 or 225 40?

    its a cost thing at the minute aswell.

    cheers

    This is mine on 235/40/18s excellent compromise between looks and price as they fit the arch perfectly
