Tire recommendation

Getting my wheels finally set up. I am looking at tires and have been looking for federal SS-595 which run wide. Looking at 225/35/18 and 255/35/18. Are those a good rolling size that match?

+This.

The OP is going for a low-priced budget tire. He's probably not going to want to spend for PSS or other higher-end tires.

I am going with AS3's for my OEM wheels. Just didn't feel like spending a ton of money on wheels I don't know if I will keep past the fall.

You can't go wrong with AS3. Conti and Nitto are another reliable brands. The DWS06 is a good all season tire for the money, and nitto motivo provides dependable traction on different weather conditions though its treadlife is not the best.

If you are not worried about the winter the conti DW is a good tire and doesn't run as wide as the PSS maybe you can go up a tire size then 235/265 instead of 225/255
