225/40/18 is optimal, but you will rub on the inner fenders at full lock for a while until you rub through the liner, and will need to roll the outer fenders a little to not rub on the front. Rears will rub if you go into very odd angle driveways or weird things, but nothing horrible at all..<p>225/35/18 are the next best option, but the ride will be a bit more stiff with the 35 series sidewall, but you won't rub.<p>Gotta gauge what you want <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

As for Q #2, how about some Khumos or Falkens!! specifically, the ASX or Zeix in 225/35s. They should be under $120(US) each. They are both A/S HP Z rated tires... <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">
