Please help with my rim size!
I am just about to order my new rims. I have decided on the Motegi FF7, they just came out, and look sweet!

Which would be better for my celi!?

215-35-18

OR

225-40-18

Thanks guys! I'll post pics of everything when I get everything put on, and my digital camera! thumbsup

215-35 is more for lookes, it gives you that really low profile

225-40 is less expensive & will give better performance

Go with 225/40 for a more comfy ride.
They will fill up your wheel wells better too, but if your car is lowered you might not need that.

Check my profile, I've got 225/40/18's

Why not get a 225/ 35/ 18?? I have them for my car quite like the look. It will also be very close to the stock overall diameter!
