Hi, I just puchased a set of 18"chromes for my 98 c230 benz, does anyone know the recommended tire size that I should use? I was told 225/40/18's were my best bet, is this my only good option without having the speedometer messed with? can I put a different size on the back or is it better to go with the 225/40's for front and back?

Thanks

thanks for your reply, I was originally advised to get 225/35's or 215/35's. would this size be the wrong size to put on these cars?
