I can't find a lot of the relevant posts I vaguely remember, regarding tire sizes.

What I want is 18x8 rims with 245/45-18 tires for my '02 SEL.

There are some alternatives I'd consider:

235/45/18
245/50-17
235/50-17
and possibly
225/45-18

So the question- which if any will fit?

EDIT, just did a search for "tire size" Came up with a TON of results, all exactly answering this question. Even links to a tire size calculator....

for 18's you want a 225/40r18 to fit withing the fender and to keep the correct size. Most places will tell you you need a 35 high, but 40 is a closer match for the speedo. It should be less than 1/2% off. As for width, yo may be able to do 235, depends on manufacturer. 245 is out of the question. also 225's are WAY cheaper and the selection is about 100x better.


45 high would be for 17's
