    Hey man . I take it you have 16 inch wheel now? 17 and 18 will be fine for 17 inch wheel 225/45/17 will be fine and for the 18 inch wheels 225/40/18 both tyres will give you perfect speedo reading.

    17 you will get good ride
    18 will be stiff I like it stiff :Wink::Whistle:

    I got 18" for summer wheels and 17" for winter set. As suggested, 18" is stiff but feels good especially going through corner. I think Honda 18" storm suit accord the best. :Smile:
