From bonneville alloys 17inch to brescia alloys 18inch

Post by MittyAhmed101 »

Hi, guys i had a question the brescia alloys have stock tyre size of 215/40/ R18 Y89
Would the 225/40/ R18 92Y fit the brescia alloys without causing any wheel arch rub or being a problem.
Thanks in advance

Hi, the gap between the 215/45 R18 is very small on the front suspension struts.
So would the 225/40/ R18 not rub on the front suspension struts in comparison to the 215/40/ R18
I'm going to be getting michelin ps4's btw
If you could share some pictures of the tyres and to see how much gap there is would be greatly appreciated
Thanks

I have the Michelin PS4 225/40/18 fitted. Not sure about the reference to a 45 profile.

4S not available on 225/40 R18, just PS4. Larger sizes are available in 4S.

Thankfully this wasnt a problem when the tires were fitted.
