...and this is not meant as criticism, your car looks great allover - but...245/40 is too small for that big car. I don't know if you've gotten used to looking at it, but it looks wrong, and the rolling diameter is way off.

I wouldn't go with anything that changes the rolling diameter more than 1 or 2 percent. 245/40 is more than 5 percent smaller than factory size. 255/45-18 all around works great and looks more natural, or go 275/40 in the rear if you have wider rear wheels.

I guess it's partly personal opinion, but that's my two cents worth ;)

no offense, ok? I'm not trying to diss your ride :)


I run the 18x8 replicas all around..

I use the 245/40ZR18 Pilot Sports...
They ride a bit rough!! But love the look...

I have pics on my website..

Just my Opinion..
