Here you go. Go look at your current tire. I bet they are 18s.

Dude your up really late. Its only 8;49 here......and yes I have a Corona in my hand. LOL
I am jealous. I may go to a restaurant just to get a drink tomorrow haha.

Yes, they are 18s. I just looked in an old thread that I knew I had posted the correct info in.

" I have 18" CT-R Rims in Pristine condition, wrapped in 255/45/ZR18 99W Riken Raptor tires with about 85% tread, closer to 90%. The man that put them on the car told me he paid $3000 new for rims and tires."



edit: I am a bit of an insomniac right now because I'm stressed about finals.


Referring to the BF Goodrich KDW's, would 285/35ZR18/XL fit? I don't know what 35ZR stands for.

Then you can put 285/40 on the rears and it will be fine. I have 255/45 up front on 8.5` rims. Those rims are nice, no need to change them.

I am unclear on this, so please don't laugh if it's a dumb question. Is it okay to buy 2 of the 285/40 bf goodrich kdw's and keep the same tires up front?

Also, just for clarification, you were talking about these, right?

Yes those are the tires I have. I am not sure if they make them in a 40 anymore. Yes you can mount them on your rims and yes its ok to have your current size on your fronts. That is exactly the same size I have on my fronts. Its referred to as a staggered setup.
Think of it this way, 285 refers to the width of the tire. 40 ( or 45 or 35 etc..) refers to the amount of rubber between the rim and the road. The lower the number the more "low profile" the tire is. And of course 18 refers to the rim size.

..and the "Z" of the "ZR" bit there means the speed rating of the tire.

While a Z-speed rating still often appears in the tire size designation of these tires, such as 225/50ZR16 91W, the Z in the size signifies a maximum speed capability in excess of 149 mph, 240 km/h; the W in the service description indicates the tire's 168 mph, 270 km/h maximum speed.

225/50ZR16 in excess of 149 mph, 240 km/h
