    Default 235/40/r18 on ms3 wheels on my gs-sky sedan

    Hi,
    Im currently running pirelli sottozero 225/45/18 on stock 18"ms3 wheel on my sedan sky and I need to buy summer tire, I found a killer deal on kijiji for michelin pilot 235/40z/r18 and was wondering if its gonna fit . I also have a eibach prokit on the way.

    Cheers
    Dan

    that may be too wide for the stock MS3 wheels which are 7.5" wide

    thanks for the feedback, I heard some people running 235 on the stock wheel on a ms3 my concern is if its gonna rub on a sedan and its probably will, Im looking at kijiji but their nothing where I live except those 235. I guess Im going to pay full price 225/40r18...

    Speed, the question was raised in this thread by someone else that the wheel itself may not be wide enough for the 235...All I can confirm is that then gen 2 wheel is wide enough for for a 235/40/18

    ok thanks for the info, so it fit the speed... I don't think its gonna fit my sedan after a eibach pro kit drop without rubbing.

    It probably will, but I know​Jack shit about non speed's. Have a look at this thread from MSF it's got some links in it (2nd or 3rd paragraph) that link to other sites and should tell you if they'll fit because these sites are designed to calc all that, sites aren't specific to any vehicle
