NeoTires offers a variety of 18" tires that cater to different driving styles and road conditions, including all-season and performance tires.
If you attempt to change your rims with larger ones, you should know that you will need new replacement tires with a lower profile. These tires present smaller sidewall height and maintain adequate clearance when going over bumps and potholes. It also causes the suspension to compress and become more rigid. When the wheel diameter increases by an inch, the tire height should reduce accordingly to keep the same diameter as the OE. For example, if you are the owner/driver of a Volkswagen Golf 7 [2015-2020] with a tire size of 225/45R17 and you bought 18-inch wheels, the right tire size for the larger rims could be 225/40R18. When the tire rim size increases, the sidewall profile decreases from 45 to 40, which means that the height of the tire's sidewall is 40% of the tread width.
In conclusion, before you replace your existing rims with bigger ones, we recommend doing some research. If you mount new wheels/tires on your car and they don't correspond, the performance of your vehicle will suffer.
These tires enjoy popularity and success among crossovers and many passenger cars. The following sizes are considered the most popular from the 18" lineup: 235/55R18, 235/60R18, and 275/65R18. The first two are the best fitment for CUVs like Jeep Compass and Lexus NX. While the 275/65R18 is the best option for pickups like GMC Siera 1500, Ford Expedition, and Toyota Tundra.
