Yeah honestly I didn't notice any loss of traction with the 225 18" they performed well for me. Maybe I'll try something similar on my next 19" and go with the 235/40 since a smoother ride is what I'm after with the same appearance. If I'm reading the measurements correctly the second number is a percentage of the width. So the 235/40/19"'s will give me 4mm over my 18's
so the side walls would be:
94mm 235/40/19"
82mm 235/35/19"
90mm 225/40/18"

Wonder if it would look stupid 12mm more sidewall on the 19's or even fit?

Man they are pretty I did miss them. We'll see how I feel after the ride to work tomorrow :). Sorry If I'm posting to much in your thread but tires are fun.
Going in Tuesday to get all 3 of my cars re-tinted I miss the side tint as well. I'm surprised I haven't received a ticket for the headlight and taillight tint yet.

I haven't researched that yet. I know back in the day I would put a different gear in the transmission to spedo but I'm sure that's not the case these days.
I'd be willing to mess up the mph and millage reading for bigger tires since it would actually reduce the miles I'm putting on the car :)

i see, there is a way to set the wheel diam rotation in vcds but we need the security code and a procedure to do it. if you can get that then we can set our speedo correctly.
