215/40R18 or 225/40R18?
Alright, I know these questions have been beat to death but I need some answers which I haven't been able to find. I currently have 215/40R18 rubber and come spring time I'll need some new tires.
My first question is who is running an 18x8 wheel, 35+ offset or lower, with 225/40R18 rubber and the Eibach springs? Are you rubbing, how bad, and how often, if at all?
My second question is I know 225 rubber will be wider and taller but really how noticeable will it be and what are the advantages/disadvantages? My main concern with 225 rubber is will it raise my ride height? I feel like I'm not low enough as it is and I don't want to be any higher.
And lastly, what do you think about a 225 in the back and a 215 in the front? There's a bit more wheel gap in the back which I think the 225 will fill up a little without rubbing issues. What are the advantages/disadvantages of that? Things like tire rotation, performance, etc.
Thanks in advance! SS.
