Do you have to stagger tire size?

Recommended Posts

Are you serious? The rears are 265 or 295 depending on which wheels/model you have. The fronts on my C4S are 225. I really don't think that would work. The rear rims are too wide and you would mess up the ride as well as loads of other things.

Why don't you just buy a cheaper make or part worn tyres if you don't want to buy new?

In the UK we have lots of cheap affordable and very good condition part worn tyres because, as I understand it very tight legal rules in Germany which means there are lots of good part worn tyres exported here.

I am going to buy new ones. I'm saying 225/40/18 all around on 18x8" rims. I currently have 17" staggered set up

Don't do it. The offset on the rears will look aweful, among other issues. Member "fpb111" provided you with the right (best) response. Follow it.

to my friend from the UK--I did not mean to use my current rims. I am going to buy new ones. I'm saying 225/40/18 all around on 18x8" rims. I currently have 17" staggered set up

Jaypee, fair enough so you would be changing the rims too. You should factor that in to your calculations. Just how much do the rears cost out there? I can get a pair of Continentals for around €347 each. If you don't drive like you stole it I would have thought you would get loads of miles out of a new pair.

Out of interest what would you be saving do you think if you did do what you were thinking?

I also agree with earlier posts that your car would look like Pee-wee Herman from the rear, it would handle worse, accelerate slower. and is generally a bad idea IMO.
