Hi all,

Would it be okay to run Titanium 18" five-spokes with 215/45-18 tires on an SE without any sort of steering limiter? The width of the tires would remain the same as the 16" and 17" wheels. But what about the width of the wheels? Would that be a cause for concern?

I wouldnt see a issue, your only going with a narrow tire... the 235's stick out a bit from the rims anyway, whats 20 mm.... most people wont know 100% just try it.... I did the same but bigger tires with my Mercury Mariner...... my tire is 235/40/18 so if you went with a narrow tire in 215, the 45 would kinda stay around the same diameter of the stock tire.... cause now you are 45% of 215 ( widest part of the tire tread).... My full size spare on my titanium is 215/55/16's So I guess you can go 215/55/18....
