    Bought a 245/40/18 tyre to test fit, wanted to reduce the tyre stretch. Happy with how it looks so Iíll fit these all round. Definitely not a fan of low profile tyres anymore so a bit more sidewall isnít an issue for me.

    Hereís some pictures to show the difference

    Looks better IMO. Still too much stretch though

    Thanks Jonny! Would prefer no stretch at all but 255 or 265s up front wonít fit I donít think plus 255/40/18 will be way out for the rolling radius. 255/35/18 is the correct size but it would mean losing 10mm off the sidewall vs the 245/40/18 Iíve got on this test fit tyre

    18x10 isnít ideal up front, 18x 9 is a better choice really.
