    Will these rub?

    Hey all, need some advice.

    I need to know if these wheels will rub. They are TSW Reflex, 18 inch. Tyres are 225/40/18

    My car is 3 door, 1.8 sport on a V plate. No mods, standard suspension.

    As a temp messure i put them on but i had bigger tyres on the back, 255/35/18 and they rub on the arches when going over bumps or dips at speed, which was obvious, but just need to know when i put the correct tyres on ( 225/40/18 ) will i still have the same problem.

    Thanks all!

    215/35 is the correct size, not 225/40. With the correct tyres they shouldn't rub, but depends on wheel width, offset etc.

    225/40 will probably be ok as long as you keep standard suspension and don't plan on lowering it.
