    aspect ratio is the height of the side wall expressed as a percentage of the width of the tyre - AKA profile

    why not post up the link and we can tell u if they will fit or not - tyre sizes arent really ideal for the mk4 - youd really want 215/35/18 but at a push the ones u mentioned might work

    i think ur gonna have trouble there! the width is 8.5" on an 18" rim even this is a tad excessive - 8" is the widest u really wanna go. and we still dont know the offset.... the pcd aint mentioned but going from the description id say its 4x100/4x108 multi drilled and would fit - but i seriously wouldnt advise getting them - oh well maybe its too late!!!!


    have u tried contacting them for the offset? not that it would matter in my opinion as 8.5J 18s on 225/40 rubber is bound to cause problems! sorry

    they'll also need a refurb (maybe just minor refurb) but this is the least of ur worries!

    Being that they fit Ford I would say they are ET35 and being that wide they would rub even with ET45.

    Dont bother

    As one tyre is knackered, would say replace all 4 anyway or drive very slow

    But if offset and width is no good anyway just steer clear.
