I run 225/40-18's front and rear (8' fronts and 8 1/2" rears). Works great.

Not to hijack - but snow tire questions as well

We have 8"x18" wheels and I am trying to figure out the best route. I am thinking about picking up a second set of wheels.

One route is a used set of stagger 8"x18" and 9"x18" which are the same style as the current wheels (so would then have 6 - 8"x18" and 2 - 9"x18"). I would use the 8"x18" for winter and the others for the summer.

Pros - similar wheels, could keep one in the trunk as a spare when needed.

Cons - would need two new summer tires for 9"x18" as I do not think it would be wise to stretch the rft 225/45/18 on to the 9"x18".

My other option is a set of 7"x17" or 7.5"x17" wheels and go with 215/50 tires.

Pros - slightly narrower tire for the winter.

Not really any cons that I can think about.


How much of an advantage would there be in going with the staggered wheels?

I could also punt and see how the car does this winter as it has all season tires but ...
