    Default 18" Irmscher Evo Stars fitted to the GSI

    Tyres arrived this morning so went straight to the garage to get them fitted, running 235/40/18 tyres and feel great on the car.

    Only took a couple of quick pics and will post better pics once the car is cleaned.

    Should really be running 235 45 18, the size you are using is not recommended by VX

    Really? after doing a few searches on here 235/40's seemed to be the choice on an 8J wheel as fitted to the VXR's. I know a few others running this size so assumed that was the correct size. Ah well fitted now. Lol

    All sorts of wrong!!!!

    They should be 225/45/18 according to the manual, however 235/40/18 are closer to 215/50/17 than the 225/45/18's are.

    The tyre size you fitted is selected by many for exactly this reason. Also the size I ran, best choice IMO.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!
