18" Wheels

Anyone know if Kazera KZ-V wheels are any good? I was thinking about getting them for my SVT. http://www.tirerack.com/upgrade_gara...&autoYear=2003 . I though the price was reasonable and its the style wheels I want. If I do go with them I checked out tires and I found two different sizes, tires.com said I should go with 215/40-18 and tirerack says I sould go with 215/35-18. What will be closer to my original size? Thanks guys! I appreciate your help!

-Mike

Okay I may be wrong but is this calculator accurate, http://www.miata.net/garage/tirecalc.html ? If it is the 40 sidewall looks almost like a perfect match when I put in the information for my stock SVT wheels and tires. Thanks again guys!

wait this is an svt huh...215/45-17 is stock on that isn't it? If that is the case, then 215/40-18 is closer. The 215/35-18 is if you had a regular zx3.

i'd stick with the 215/35/18 tires. looks the best, gives you a great stiff sidewall, and throws off your speedometer next to nothing.
