Will these tires fit on these wheels?

Hey guys,

I found a pretty good deal on a set of VMR 710s 18x9 in front and 18x10 in rear. The only problem is that I have a very new set of Hankook V12s in Front Tire Size: 225/40-18 and Rear Tire Size: 255/35-18.

Will these tires work alright? I don't want to have to buy a new set of tires, but I don't want it to look ridiculous on my car either.

Thanks

Yes, those will work. 225/40/18 and 255/35/18 are factory sizes and you can use them with little bit wider wheels. Tyres are little bit "stretched", but how much depends on the tyre manufacturer. It's nothing major tho. Also the "stretch" will help you push the wheels more out.

Couple examples. Im sure you can find more examples if you google it.

Those will work easily, as long as you don't mind some stretch, nothing crazy though

Thanks for the input guys! Would you pay $600 for a set of mint used 18 in VMRs? Also, I hear hankooks are narrower tires, will this affect anything?

Well it's 150$/wheel. I have no idea what brand new VMRs cost, but considering that the wheels are little bit wider than the basic setup.Price doesn't sound that bad.

What are the offsets on those wheels?

Well it doesn't really affect anything, except how it will stretch on the wheel. I have Hankook 235/40/18 on 9.5 wheel and it doesn't look bad.Which is about the same as 225/40 on 9.

As said before, depending on the offsets you can use spacers to push the wheels more closer to fender, because of those narrower tyres.

I thought about it for too long and the wheels have been sold to someone else

Thank you so much for your help though, I really appreciate it!

No problem. Well that's shame, time to find a new set.
