    Anyone running 40 profile tyres or 18's?

    Need new tyres and don't like the 35 profile tyres that are on just now as the car is too skippy. Would 40's throw the speedo out much or rub? Car isn't lowered.

    Should be fine when not lowered, I had 35s and the car was lowered 50mm all round and had no rubbing.

    Astra G was not designed to run 40 profile tyres on 18" rims. Stick with the 35's.

    I'm running 225/45's on 17" (which is roughly the same size). I've had no problems with rubbing yet, but then I haven't lowered it yet
