If you have a 16" rim, with 205/55R16H tires, and want to upgrade to 18x8" wheels, what tire size would you go with?? also, same question but different size.. 15" rim with 195/65R15H tires.. what tire size would you get if you were to upgrade to 18x8"..??

To get the exact size, it would be closer to 245/40/18 I think that is what the stock size was for the 18" wheels. I have been told by people who know what they are doing(Tirerack), that if your new diameter is within 10% either way, then you are probably OK. For example, i am running 225/50-16 on my Stealth ES, and it works just fine.

FYI....

I wasn't talking about our beloved cars...
I was asking about the wheels on a 2000 VW Passat.. they either come 15" standard or 16" 'premium' wheels, but an upgrade to 18x8" would be what I'd want to do.. or I have seen 19" done... hmmmm..
