    confused Wheel

    Hi Guys/Girls

    Right i have just bought a signum 2004-2005 plate car. It has some 18" Oz Alloys on it. But i need new tyres on all four sides. The question is that the Manufacturer Recommends 225/40/18" for the Signum on a internet trye site. but I Currently have 235/30/18 what is the Difference between those two tyres ???? Also that the Oz wheels will take the Recommended size. ??? All i can find out from the Oz web site is minimal.

    I know that F£££ing about with the Tyres/wheel sizes can have a demterimental effect on the car how likely is that with the tyes will have an effect on the car

    With the bigger tyres will i have to get the car an alignment of the wheels to adjust to the bigger tyres?

    Any help would be appriacted

    The size Vx uses is a 225/45/18,but most people use a 225/40/18 as there's more choice and it's slightly cheaper,A 235/40/18 can be used, but the wheel should be 8" wide,this combination fills the arches nicely,if you've got 235's already as long as the wheel is suitable stick to this size.
