Beyern Type "Multi"

Beyern Type "Multi"

{On an 05' e46 coupe w/ sport pack}

I think these will look Gordonish. My question is about tire size. I own a set of NEW Bridgstone Potenza RE750 225x40x18.

Wheel specs:18x8.5 et:40x bore:72 Lip:1 1/3"

Can I use my 225x40's or do I need 235's? I don't want problems with cornering or anything for that matter.

Thanks.

First, those are very hot!

Second, those tires will fit on there just fine.

I decided to go 19" staggered 8.5 front 9.5 rear with factory rondels. I'm getting them from Jake at Butler Tire. He does wheels for everyone in ATL and knows his ****. If in Atlanta go to this guy. The deal he is giving me is incredible. Check out the magazine "Celebrity car" fall 2006 issue to see him with Mike and Marcus Vick. Also he is in "car audio" magazine (November 06) with the "Butler Bentley" bastard gets to drive it. Also getting me ACS roof spoiler. I want a new rear bumper...and front...which ones....don't know. ONE PROBLEM: the wheels most likely won't be here for 3 weeks. Expect pics though cause its getting dropped too.
