    What size tyres have you got on 18's???

    Hi ......... just trying to sort out alloys etc...... and was wondering what size tyres will fit the coupe WITHOUT any rubbing etc

    at the mo its got the standard 205/50/16 coupe alloys am looking at 225/35/18 or 225/40/18 or 235/35/18 or 235/40/18

    which is gonna be the best fitment and how far out will either profile put my speedo?

    ps....... how much should i sell the coupe alloys for...... 2 good nick, 2 light kerbed...... all 4 have brand new tyres

    If they are Coupe Turbo ones then you should sell them to me for a dirt cheap price

    Is Simon drunk??? it's well acknowledged that 215/35v18 are the best size tyres for 18s on the Mk4. Speedo is virtually spot on on mine with that size fitted. Unless of course Daves is a Mk5.

    I've never even heard of anyone using 285/40s.
    52 Astra G 1.8, 18" Mille Miglia alloys, 325mm Brembo 4 pot conversion, Coupe leather interior, Raid strut brace, Whiteline rear ARB, Irmscher bits (skirts, Carbon steering wheel, Bonnet extension, M3 mirrors, boot & roof spoiler), Reiger Rear Diffuser & Front Bumper, Koni Adj. dampers, 35/30 Vogtland springs, Duplex quad exit ASCAR stainless exhaust.
