Tire Size Selection
Hey guys, I've searched but haven't been able to find the answer to my question. I'm looking at getting some 18x7.5 rims and can't determine if 215/35 or 225/35 tires would be best. I'm not looking to push the width envelope or anything and I also want to stay as close to the stock diameter as possible. Is there anything I need to watch out for with either of these sizes/what are some of the pros and cons of them?

A 225 35 18 should put you very close to the stock overll diameter. I have no problems with rubbing. I also think that the 225 looks better... wouldn't change my size for the next set.

I should also ask this too I suppose, will a +35mm offset work? And HJC_Celica is your car lowered at all? Thanks for the facts.

Yes, a 35mm offset will work 'cuz the Celica offset is 35-45mm. I would go with the 225 'cuz it'll give you a wider foot, but I would suggest going with a 40 sidewall. 35 is too thin & it's really easy to scratch you wheels. Plus a 40 tire is less expensive than a 35 tire.

Thanks for the offset info. I have one more offset related question. The rims I'm looking at come in either a 35mm OR 45mm offset. Does anyone know which would look better/what the difference would be?
