    225/45/18 tyres onto 08 estate

    Any ideas if these tyres would be ok on a set of 18" alloy wheels (et41) for my astra estate club? Its an additional 28mm on the diameter over my current 16" wheels.

    Wheels from a vectra c,

    cheers

    There isn't much clearance there, ive got 225/40/18 on my bertone, 225/45/17 on my vectra b, standard suspention tho,

    There is very little clearance on both, and would not fit if lowered,

    So you might get away with it, best to try,
    hope ive helped

    My mate has 225.40.18 on his sportive van, which I assume would basically be an estate without windows, and there is loadsa clearance.

    Surely an estate arch is no different to a hatch??? if so I have 225/40/18 on mine, and its lowered 40mm, and there's no probs even with 3 in back, so 45 should have ample clearance especially on standard suspension.

    thanks for the replies - seen some wheels i like on ebay didn't go by auction so might see if they will take a lower offer so i have some money left over to change the tyres to 40 profile if i have any problems.

    Mine is a club so it has the most arch clearance of all models i think as the sxi/sri spec are lowered a little more than the base models.
