Tyres for 18" esseesse wheels
« on: October 07, 2014, 03:59:25 pm »
Hi! I've just bought some 18" esseesse wheels (without tyres) for my supersport, does anyone know the tyre code for them? I know this might seem like a silly question but any help would be appreciated!

Thanks

    I've asked my local garage for a price for those, but for some reason he's come back with a price for 215/45/18W. Help!

    215/40/18 is standard or you can go up to 225/40/18.

    The latter are cheaper and you can get better tyres as well as a bit of overhang to protect the alloy. :thumb:

    Falken ZE914 here, BRILLIANT grip all round, especially in the rain and they're lasting longer than the Toyo Proxes T1 it had before.

    They go for about 80 a tyre on ebay.
