The profile will depend on the width, so you have to choose a combination of width and profile that will fit in the wheel wells and retain a close to factory rolling diameter. For 18" wheels, some great sizes are 255/45 front and 275/40 rear. For 19" you can use 255/40 front and 275/35 rear. For 20"...well, you see the pattern. Some have used other sizes, even wider in the rear (I've seen up to 295) and narrower in the front (like the factory Sport option 235/50-18).

Also check out for some wheel options,they have an interactive thingy that will show the wheels on the car.

Good luck! Le me know if I can clarify any of this.


I'm sick of my stock wire looking rims. Does anyone know of quality rims I can put on my car? I'm thinking possibly 18's and wonder what the lowest profile I can put and the width?
