That size tire should fit real nice on an 18x8.5 wheel

I assume summer tires?

I'm pretty happy with my BFGoodrich g-Force Sport COMP-2's. One of the best tires I've ever had on a car, with only the Continental DW's being better in terms of grip. My only issue with the DW's was that they were awful in the rain, and on a DD in Michigan I need something that can handle wet roads.

hmmm not a bad suggestion. I have heard up and down stuff about the DW's but a lot of good stuff about bfgoodrich. i have been considering sticking with nitto motivo's or maybe a dunlop direzza z101

I had the Direzza Z101's on my MINI Cooper before I put the DW's on. They weren't bad but they really didn't feel as good as I thought they should have. Their grip progression felt weird too when compared with the DW's. If you want Dunlops, I'd skips the 101's and just go right for the Star Specs. I've never tried them myself but more than half the people I know who autocross use them and swear by them.

Those Nitto's are all-seasons too I believe so they really won't stack up against dedicated summer tires. I'm sure they aren't bad tires, but judging by your avatar you autocross so you'll probably want something a bit more glued to the ground.

I'm thinking when my 235/40ZR18 Michelins wear out (the ones that came on the car from factory, which are 20k-mile life expectancy) I'm going to this 225 tire size, or else a 225/45. Either will allow me to do a delete of the turning radius limiters that come on the Handling Package.

I think the 225/40 18 should fit well on the 18x8.5 tarmac rims im getting
