    Vehicle : 2.2 Direct

    Trim : SRI

    Engine : YH 2.2 petrol

    Year : 2006

    Mileage : 85000

    Default tyre size??

    Hi I am looking at putting a new set of 18" alloys on my 2.2 SRI direct, whats the correct tyre size to go for, is it 225/40/18 or 225/45/18 or do you go for 235 also thinking about either nankang or falken, what do you think and does anyone have any advice as the next step is to lower by 30mm

    You need to fit 225/45/18 or 235/40/18. Do n ot fit 225/40/18's as they are too small and not standard fitment

    I have Falken FK452's fitted and they seem ok

    Most tyre manufactures say you need to use a 8J (8 inch width) rim with 235/40/18's inc Neutron so make sure you alloy is wide enough

    the wheels i am looking at are 8J's and I can get the wheels themselfs or with tyres on which are 225/40/18 Fullruns, I thought I would get the wheels only and stick a set of either Nankangs or Faulkens
