depends on wat size rims u get. i have 18" ss/sc rims and i have a 225/45/r18 size tire. other possibilities could be 225/40/r18, 225/35/r18, 230/40r18, 220/45/r18, 220/40/r18...

dude this is meaty compared to my last tires.
my last tires i had 215/35/18s. and didnt bend a rim with those.

225/40/18 is perfect tire size for me. not too meaty, not too small.
