So if you are running higher offset and 235's you should be good to go.

viggenluca True it was really low, i was dumb and did not do research. I just bought the wheels because they looked nice. 50+ offset would be great. It would be cool to see someone run 255's infront to get some traction.

It also all depends on the tire.

NeedForSwede I think 32mm is too low of an offset for fwd cars anyway. I tend to use something closer to 38-42mm.

235/40/18 on a Viggen coupe?

Has anyone tried it? Did it work? What rims were you running? I have a set of BBS RK's that will need a new set of tires soon....I was thinking of maybe trying this size out.....I didn't seem to have any issues with 225/40/18. I'm not really worried about the cost difference in tires either....
