    i got 225 40 18's on mine cos i want to raise the ride hight as i kept smaking my front bumper, also i wanted a tyre that would protect my alloys as much as possible, ive lowered 40mm and needed rear arch rolling and stiffer dampers but all good...hope this helps,

    215/35/18 if you want to keep the same rolling radius or 215/40/18 if you want a little more comfort .

    215/35/18 chap is ideal size mate, bit pricey at the moment but will go down in price due to being more popular now than ever before.
