Default Tyres

225/40/18 tyres would they fit on a classic cant remember what size i was running on my last classic positive it was that size as the prices of tyres are cheaper than 215/35/18 .

215/35 on an 18 is the norm.
225/35 on an 18 your ET needs to be greater than 51

Smaller means it will stick out more and more likely to rub

On mine it is the corner of the tyre that rubs currently, because of issues and lack of wheels and tyre combinations that fit over brembos i have decided a slightly different path.

What surprised me was everything was ok until i did brembo conversion on rear, the discs must alter the offset ever so slightly.

Just got 4x Goodyear Eagle F1 assy 3's in 225/40/18 with rim protectors from blackcircles for 303 which I didnt think was too bad. Could be another option? But I take it the rears on the Beemer to be quite wide?
