215/35-18 or 225/35-18?

I am ready to buy tires for my rims finally, and I dont know which witdth to go with. 215/35-18 or 225/35-18?

I know that a 225 will give me the stock size, which is good. But which is the better choice? Will I really need to have a tire that wide?(225)

Please share some ideas.

oh yeah this may help. I am lowering the car with the Eibach pro-kit. I dont want any rubbing. so what would be the better choice?

Someone has to know this...

go with wider, looks nicer and holds you on the ground better.

the 215 gives a better look than the 225 in my opinion. but the the 225 give you more protection from curbing your rims since its a little wider than the 215. it depends what you want. i say go with the 215.

225/35/18 bro, a slightly wider tire will give you some extra performance in both acceleration, braking, and cornering.

I'd go with 225/35/18, good compromise between the 215/35 and 225/40 thumbsup

If it rubs or not depends on what offset your wheels are. I have 235 tyres on 19's, and a bigger drop than you're planning and I have no scrubbing.

Told you 225 is the way to go if you can find the right tire that you want! Also get the 40's because it will kill bumps better and ride smoother!

that 215/35 will have a very low profile to it. to low for a comfortable ride in my opinion, go with the 225/35.

a 215/40 would have a similar sidewall height to that of the 225/35

you can however find more tires along with cheaper tires in the 215/35, 215/40, 225/40 then in the 225/35's
