Upgrade to 18s or stick with 17s when tyres worns out


Recommended Posts

Hey guys, can't decide on whether to upgrade to 18s wheel package or buy new set of tyres.

If i buy new tyres, for 17s and good brand it'll be around 220 per tyre, if i upgrade to wheel package it should be 1300.

What do you think?

No i'm not.

Thing with 18s is i would want to run 45 series tyres or bigger to make the ride comfy. And what to do with the stock 17s?

it is really all up to you , on what you like .

17's = new tyres

18's = new wheels still comfortable to ride

19's = style and slightly rougher

have a look at this site(Link).

just upload an image of your car (EITHER SIDE , and ONLY the side of the car) and pick a style you like and it will give you a ROUGH visual .

its alright to give a depiction of what your car will look like on 18s, but its best to actually trial fit some for a more realistic view.

EDIT : sorry aem , just had my 18s sold today.

I got the wheels in mind just not sure about parting with my oem 17s. The current ride is just too smooth...

That said, anyone have experience with 225/40/18s on the Camry, say with Kumhos?

Running 225/45/18 currently on my car. But I can't really tell you how it rides as I'm on coilovers. Personally speaking, if 235/40 18s fit, i'd go with those because it is way cheaper than 225s being more common and wont affect your speedo reading significantly.

Which Kumho's you thinking of using? I have the KU36s and they are grippy.

If i do go with 18s it will be a swap over from my other car which is 225/40/18 (Ecsta Sevens KU23 i think). So the deal is this.

Camry ===> 225/40/18s from other car (50% tread left).

Other Car ===> 225/35/19s (roughly $1700, new tyres probably Nexen N8000).

ETA roughly 3-6 months.

Or get new 17" oem brand (Michellin) tyres for roughly $900 (set of 4)

ETA roughly 3-6 months.
