Looking at tires...
I've now got 18x7.5 rims with 42 offset and need tires.. I've got some TRD springs I'm gonna be installing on my car too..

What size tires would be recommended? 225/35? 225/40? 215/40?

I'm scared of rubbing.. Also, any suggestions on any tire in particular? I'm looking for something that'll last with decent performance.. (Price is also kind of an issue too frown )

*sigh*.. what to get.. what to get.. spineyes

i've had great luck with nittos either 450s or 555s

i've had paradas spec 2 and kumos 712s and they seem to wear a lot faster than the nittos do also the nittos seems to grip so much better

How many miles did your Yoko's and Kumho's last you?


BTW, thanks guys for the help.. I think I'm gonna go with the 225/40.. Not sure which brand yet though..
