Or should I go with 225? I have 215/45/18 right now and am about to purchase some Nitto NT555. I'm thinking about 225/40/18 but if the 235's would fit I might consider them. I'm looking for a slightly more filled out wheel well and know I won't get much from a few mm, but anything helps.

Hows the Ice in Tn. and do You have a Separate Set of Wheels for Foul<br>Weather ? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/cool.gif" BORDER="0">

Definitely will have a second set. Ice isn't so bad but the real problem is complete unpredictability. Snow follows 98 degree weather sometimes. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0">

If You Look at the Spec. Chart Area When Looking at the Tires ,It will Give Rim Size Needed , Dia. of Tire & Rev's Per Mile.<p>I would Try the 225/50's If using 17"<br>On the 18" It gets Harder to get the Right Dia. , but seems <br>25.5 Dia. Deviation from Stock 24.9 wouldn't interfere .<p><br>I done some Traveling around Your Area , Lots of Country Rds. - Small Country Roads , Yet there are some - Nice Smooth Roads - Not as Bad as NY.<br>I'd Be Careful on the Low Profiles .<BR><BR>

i have 245/40r18 on 7.5 medusas no problem at all. the only one is that you cant lowered your car cause you'll have rubbing issues all over .
