It's time for new tires so you guys know that means it's time to consider a wheel change to get off of the stock wheels.

I'm looking at a set of 18x9" wheels and am interested in throwing on 245/40-18s. Cheaper tires than 19", more sidewall, slightly wider, lighter.

Has anyone used this size on the 8V? Any fitment issues? Any pictures maybe?

Thanks guys.

Sorry, I've been off the board for awhile.
Here's a pic with Apex SM-10 18x9 ET42 with Falken RT-660 255/35.
With 18x9 ET42 or ET40, I've run Michelin Pilot Alpin PA4 in 235/40 for winter; works very well.
