      Width shouldn't make a difference. I went from 235 45 to 245 40 and with the eibachs my ride is not really any more harsh. What I hear now are the cracks in the road because I lost some of the profile.

      It will make a small difference. Remeber the tire size is a ratio, so 235/40/18 means the tire is
      235mm wide
      40% of 235 = sidewall height
      18 is the rim diameter.

      So the sidewall on a 235 is slightly taller than a 225. Also a 225 on a 8.5" rim has a slight stretch to it.

      I have 225/40/18 on my fronts and 245/40/18 on my rears (in the process of getting new tires) wish I had gone 235 instead of 225.

      I have 225/35/19 and I don't feel much of a difference. I am however on coils with the dampening set on medium. About 75%. You feel bumps more than you would with stock suspension and wheels but it's not terrible.
      Would ya look at that..

      I concur I prefer a flush look on the cc. But that's just my opinion. To each his own.

      these are 19s 8.5 et35 i bought them from oemwheelsplus.com

      im a little disappointed because my tires didnt come in today.
      i went with continental dws 225/35/19, i had sears match the price on tirerack, but about couple of hrs later i found them about $30 cheaper per each tire on carid.com so hopefully they will match that price ;]
      now ill have to wait till they come in on Thursday. ill take some pictures right after i put them on.

      Nicely done. #2 my favorite, the others are good, but 2nd is off the charts.
      Did you park and run to take the picture or you had help?

      Et38 is just about flush on an 8.5 so you probably need a 12mm to 14mm spacer to get you where you need depending on your lowering options.

      Hmmm I don't know exactly, but with the tires they don't feel like they weigh much more (if any) than my Interlagos!

      20lbs is usually good. I think if my mind serves me correctly.

    30. 07-05-2012 06:45 PM #1920
      It's 90 lb-ft. Also best to re-check/torque after the first 50-miles.

      225/35/19 dws
      Koni all the way down up front and about 5 threds in the back with full tank.
      Ill lower the back When i Get half a tank of gas
      I went all the way down up front just to See how it looks, and also to test the noise theory, and Yes i still Get some noise When turning the wheel. I think Its the Springs rubing against each other. Ill put a rubber hose around them to check it later This week.

      Ill be also getting 3mm spacers for the front.

      Are you rubbing at all? I have the same setup with 245 tires and I suspect that I am rubbing because of the wider tire? It's only when I hit big dips in the road?
