That doesn't seem like much a stretch. What are you looking for? Stretch or slighyt stretched sidewall.

I have a 225/40 on an 18x9 and it does a slight stretch inwards. I would look into a 205 at least if possible?

on my model Altima u usually dont call for anything less than a 45 sidewall for 18s. being the size of the wheelwells, and it can fit 22s no rub. but they dont make a 205/45/18, just a 205/40/18. a guy is trading me his Yokahama 215/45/18 for my 225/40/18s. this is cause the 35 offset has the tires in the back rubbing just a lil when i hit bumps, and i plan on throwin the front down another inch.

soooo im just doing this to tuck a lil tire, since at my lowest point on static i wont tuck 40 sidewall 18s. this car needs at least 19s, so im satisfied with the tucked tire look for a daily driver. and curve the sidewall to make more clearance. and if its enough clearance, i can put some spacers on for a lil more "poke" if i can use that work lol. nothing crazy aggressive for now, maybe next year when i can afford to

You need wider wheels if you want a stretched profile. No way around it.

i know that. im not looking for a stretched profile, just a thinner tread pattern to avoid rubbing. this is cause of where the 35 offset sits in my fenders. and just wana see ahead of time what it will look like. i dont plan on wide wheels with a stretch anytime soon.

Nice thread, I am looking for the same thing! Keeping an eye out for pics and this thread....

BTW, to all those saying that "more tire stretch" is needed, what maximum wheel width would be suggested/recommended, since the recommended wheel width range for most 215/45/18 tires are 7"-8", possibly 8-1/2".... Thanks! (Sorry if this seems like a thread jack, but seems somewhat relevant ;-P)

i dont fully understand what your asking, is it what wheel width would give you stretch with a 215/45?

op, have you rolled your fenders?

I apologize for the confusion.... Yes, what maximum wheel width would give a nice stretch, considering that the maximum recommended width for 215/45/18 tire is roughly 8"...

Obviously, many people have pushed tires beyond their recommended range in wheel widths as suggested by the tire manufacturer(s), but just researching the "safe" limits ... LOL... Thanks!

its harder to show stretch on a 215/45 because of how much sidewall it has. I had a 215/45 falken 452 on a 9.5 and it barely looked stretched, but it was

as far as maximum, you gotta get pretty wide, i currently have a 215/40 (less sidewall) on a 10 and I daily drive it with no issues.

ya i know it wasnt on tyrestretch cause i tried lol. but yeah not looking for a stretch on an 8 at all, just shavin some off the side to get more clearance without rolling fenders. ill go with more aggressive wheels later just for now i want to tuck tires. and cause of my height i think a 45 sidewall is best for my Altima. 18s arent that big for my model so thats why a 45 sidewall will work. and they dont make a 205/45/18 unfortunately

but i do have my eye on some cheap rims, gold Rays-style rims (knockoffs nor Rotas though) that are as follows:

F= 18x8.5 25offset R= 18x9.5 35 offset

i think those sizes would be perfect for my ride. cause i have a 18x8 35 offset now and it doesnt sit flush but comes out pretty nice!

nah but my local hydro/airbag shop should have a roller layin around so i might get them rolled for future purposes anyway. i dont need to be pulled or nothin crazy just "shave" away the inside lip. if i can sell my rims ill buy these other ones. They are a cheap brand RAZE R74 but i like the look, gold and polished. i dont care about gettin some cheap wheels anyway cause i dont wanna ruin good ones around my neighborhood

the stock wheel/tire combo on Mazda RX8 is 225/45/18 on 18x8 (my wife has those wheels). given how conservatively car manufacturers set their tire sizes, going down to 215 wont give you a stretch

like i said before not tryin to get a stretch just more clearance, like a hair difference from 225 to 215. and slightly higher sidewall.... but scratch all this cuz the guy with the tires backed out, and i might be selling my rims this Saturday locally and getting the above Raze wheels 18x8.5 et25 and 18x9.5 et35 gold racing wheels. cheap wheels but good stance. maybe, we see what happens

Dude, just roll the fenders. If your gunna go low and mess with offset+width roll the fenders and be done with it. Gives you way more of a advantage in the end if you wanna go more aggressive, which you most likely will sooner or later.
