I have new wheels coming, 18x8 40 mm offset, I am thinking about a fatter tire and this size is it.. it is 1.18 inches fatter and the other sizes are right on compared to the 235-45-18 size, so has anyone in here used a 265-40-18 tire? I used a tire/wheel calculator. also there is alot of room in the rear for wide tires, I am assuming for the front when the wheel is turned in the fatter tire should clear the sway bar..any feedback would be appreciated. P.S. I am running stock ride heighth. Thanx.

I do not think it would look silly, but I decided to use the OE Michelins..save my $$ for maybe a exhaust or??

too wide a tire for an 8" rim, it'll bulge


FYI, just my opinion, use to work for a tire company...was their high performance tire rep


also remember, not all 265/40's are the same size between manufacturers, i've seen over an 1" variance between same sized tires
