Hey guys, I really lucked out today, picked up four 18" Samarkand wheels today for my b5 Passat wagon. Haven't decided what color to paint them yet, they are currently lime green. My question for you guys is what size tire do I need for them? I want a lower profile, definitely don't want a big tire. Maybe 2 inch side wall or around that. image.jpg

To keep the same overall rolling diameter, a 225/40/18 is the correct size.

When I was running 18's I had 225/40/18 in the fronts with 265/35/18 in the rear (on wider rims)
225/40/18 will be the perfect size tire - all round - for you
