exhamle: 215/40/18
the first number 215 is how wide the tire is, the second is how hight the sidewall is, and 18 is the rim size that it goes on

I would, depends on your taste. 40 gives a better ride and to some 35 looks better

so the sidewall is how much of the tire is shown? so 35 would have a lower pro than 40? is that right?
