Which tire size would be best for 18 x 7.5 Rims???

If I was to buy an 18 x 7.5 wheel which tire should I get?

a) 215/35/18

b) 215/40/18

c) 225/40/18

I'd like to know your ideas based on your experiences. I want good handling. I'm not gonna drop my car.

Thanks

get a tire thats made for a 7.5 width, some tires are made for 7" width only. im gonna say a definately but maybe b would fit. it depends on how low your drop is to avoid rubbing and camber wear issues.

make sure you get a warranty on tires from discount if you get tires, saves money when you get one free tire. but the 215/35 would be too small depending on your drop. the 215/40 probably the best.

You're right I think 215/35 will look too thin because I'm not planning on dropping my car. I saw your car is that 215/40 tire you got there? And are those rims 18's?

215/35 will actually give you a smaller overall diameter than stock. I'd go with 215/40 because that will only be slightly larger and will keep your speedo most accurate.

Yeah I think 215/40 is not too thin for an 18" rim.
