Will four 18" tires fit in a coupe?

I am picking up four winter tires tomorrow and was wondering if anyone was able to fit four tires in a coupe? I am thinking one in the trunk, two in the backseat and on in the front seat. The tires are 225/45/18

easily. If they're bagged and clean you can even fit 4 in the back seat no problem.

you can, just make sure you have them bagged properly. If your interior is not black and if the tire touches it, good luck cleaning that stuff.

Yes, I fit 4 18" staggered M3 wheels and tires. the fronts will fit in a big black bag, the rears wont! Try bringing and roll of cling wrap for the rears.

I fit a whole drum kit and hardware in mine. If you can't put 4 tires in yours, warm up with a few games of Tetris.

Yes, with no problem. Unless your suspension is dead.

I managed to fit 2x225 and 2x255 tires, just make sure to cover apart from the seats, the trunk floor liner as well, or at least flip it so the rubberized part is facing up. I have one nice 18" circle on the trunk floor
