GTI 18" tyre size

Post by Andy Beats »

Anyone know the tyre spec for the optional 18" wheels?
Can only find spec for the standard 17s
Don't have the car yet to go and check myself, but want to price up some winters for it while they're still cheap.

215/40ZR18 89W
Hope that helps? I just fitted 225/40/18 Michelin PS4 and they change the car completely.

And they're an odd sized with a much higher price than 225/40 R18.

Winter tyres not so bad, around £80 reach for new Nexen/Nankang winters.
Both brands I'd happily fit.
