    recommended 18" Tyre Size

    hi i have just bought an astra coupe turbo that has been lowered 40mm all round, the tyres currently are 215/35 18 and they pretty much are all bold on the inside and good on the out so tomorrow i am going to replace all of them. the trouble is the 215's look a bit sad on the rims and the rim sticks out further than the tyre also the 35 profile is similar to the profile of an elastic band so wouldnt mind a little bigger (only due to the shocking pot holes we have in roads here in leicester). i know altering the tyre sizes are going to affect the speed slightly but what tyres would everyone else go for if they was me?

    215/35 18 again

    225/35 18?
    or

    225/40 18

    help please as i plan to change my tyres tomorrow and want peoples opinions

    also what was the Standard Tyre size from factory on a 2002 Astra Coupe turbo 215/40 17 or 215/45 17 because i notice that people have a mis match of different sizes

    thanks

    Good move

    225/40/18's would have rubbed
