    225/45/18 on Turbo

    They work on stock wheels . Had them on for six days now on Brand new Turbo . Does not seem to rub on the Backside inside.. Helps a little with ride . 225/45/18 Conti DWS , ride nice ,quiet, handles well because of the Suspension setup. Also lighter than Khumo. Next up New lighter wheels.

    Do you notice your speedometer being more accurate? I want to go up in size too for that reason. With stock tires I think it is off close to 8%. I could be off some.

    In your 1/13/13 post on the 'Tires for the 18'' wheel...' thread, you reported that the 225/45/18 Conti DWS tires "...rub a little on turns on the backside plastic inner cover." Which is it...do the DWS tires rub or not? Please clarify your conflicting observations.

    SVT remember this is close you may get a slight rub makeing turns ..but that plastic is light . Thats why im posting this stuff everthing is new VT is just Brand new 3 weeks . I think it clears on the backside wheel well towards the Engine it looks that way anyway . But there is one like colum in the middle of that inside plastic liner it rubs .. If it gets warmer like maybe 35 ill try to take pic for you guys. Chaz

    225/45/18 and new wheels

    Im been looking for LIghtweight Alloy Wheels for this 225/45 setup . Hard to find need +48 +49 maybe 50 dont know yet . Ok maybe you guys can help me out ....If i went to a 8 inch wide wheel will it let the 225 spread a little on the wheel like so it may flatten out a touch ....reason being ,if it flattens a bit ,it may not hit wheelwell ??? Also i got to check on the 8 inch wheel if it will work . Any inpt would be appeciated Thanks Chaz Maybe a 5 or 6 spoke split Wheel.
