Reaper69ZA Posted March 6, 2012 Report Share Posted March 6, 2012 Yo... I need to change the original tyres on my car but I am having a real problem finding the original sizes especially for the rear tyres. (285/40R18) What would be the impact or difference if I were to substitute that with a more common size like 275/45R18 or 275/40R18? And which of the two would be more suitable? Alternatively, I was thinking about changing the rim as well to solve this problem. I really like the 2011 rim but what 'side effects' can I expect? (19" front and 20" rear) Will the new rims fit and do I have to use the original tyre size for that as well or can that be changed too? Do I have to modify anything on the car to make it work? I have been searching for a really long time now and I am reaching a desperate stage, so all help will be greatly appreciated... Ps. I live in Dubai so references to stores in USA wont really be applicable... Thank you... Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
