I just got my Super Advan Gen 2s in today and I would like to get some replies on tire companies. I was wondering if someone could tell me what is the best size for 18X9 and 18X10. Thanks

List your offsets please. 265/35 and 285/30 would be a good setup if you have the right offsets.

I think Steve should get his own section on the forum for all wheel/tire combo questions!!!! ;)

Maybe I can put together an Excel spreadsheet that could be posted on MKIV.com. It would allow you to type your wheel diameter, width, offset, and intended use. I would then recommend a tire size in a couple of different $ ranges.

If anyone knows how I can go about getting this posted let me know.

I have 18 x 9 front with 245/40ZR-18s and 18 x 10 rear with 275/35ZR-18s

I think the ideal rear would be 285/35ZR-18

With larger fronts, 295/30ZR-18 should be ok. Huge rear with small front tires would give too much understeer.

No offense, but the OPTIMAL rear would not be a 285/35. The tire is too tall. 285/30's are the PERFECT rear, since they are the same height as stock equipment, hence, no change in diff ratio or speedo error.

Same goes for 255/35's being great for the front.

How's that sound, "Wheel Boy"? :D

A 265/35 is still a better fitment than the 255/35 but you are correct about the 285/35.

I will actually go to a 275/35 for the front with my 295/30 rear when I replace my tires.

BTW at 35 I may be the "wheel old man" but not the "wheel boy" :)

I have my doubts that the 265/35 will work with your wheel. Let me know the offset so I can give you accurate information. You may have to go with a 255/35.
