Which tyre combo is best for me. After reading the forums and the carbible it seems
235/40/18 or 245/45/18 is the way to go?
My current is 255/35/18 rear and 225/40/18 front (I have coilover so maybe 225 is safer on the wider front rim?
If I stretch tyres I assume I lose some contact path thus don't get as much traction?

those size tires are closest to stock rolling diameter in 18's - ie. have the least amount of speedo difference.
just take a pic of your rim vs coilover on full lock and see what case if worse. if miles away then go a 235 if your worried about stretch?
i have 225 on 8.5" rim, no problems what so ever

265/35/18 rears &
But going back to your first post you said the 255 / 18x9.5 +18 rears scraped your coilovers... I'm assuming that's because your running a massive amount of negative camber to get them under the guards? If so your quest for grip is going to be handicapped by the size/offset of your rear wheels.

P>S i dont think Advan make the AD08s in a 245/35/18, they do a 245/40/18 though
I'm hoping to purchase while the deal is still on!

Since you said you weren’t a fan of the rims, wouldn’t it make sense to get new rims that fit with your hopes of getting traction in first gear. Otherwise just flare those rear guards and get the 265s.

The other factor potentially worth consideration is that lower profile tyres are less comfy and wider tyres are more likely to hydroplane in wet conditions.
So basically, physics tells us to prioritise compound 1st for street applications, and also that drag cars need *tall* tyres to maximise straight line traction (just look at top fuel cars). Soft semis in 205 will shit on ordinary tyres in 255 or even 305 for straight line pulls. Track work is another matter entirely.
