I have an 09' SE and I've been riding Enkei 20's on 225/35/20's for a couple years now. I've cracked 2 rims in a short amount of time. I got lucky and managed to get both repaired very well.

I've been riding 245/35/20's on the rear a few months now and they only rub when I have someone sitting in the backseat and hit a bump.

I believe these 20's are 8 or 8.5 and et35 but not 100% certain and they came on the car when I bought it used. I also think the car has been lowered because the springs underneath are red but I'm honestly not sure. I seriously doubt I have coilovers or my fenders rolled.

I just can't afford buying tires, repairing rims and feeling every bump anymore so I'm buying some 18's.

Looking to get some 18x9 et34 on 235/40/18's all the way around.

Is that likely to be ok?
Would 225/45/18 be better?
Would 18x8.5 et30 be worth 100$ more for roughly the same style rim?

Thank you guys so much for your help.

225/45/18 or 225/40/18 if you're lowered.

Tire Rack sells tires for their function and performance NOT looks...you have to decide whether you want the car to perform at its best or whether you place a premium on appearance.

I value performance more than looks to be honest, is what they recommend the best option in your opinion? is there a happy medium? The car is never going to be lowered.

When you go wider you get more traction at the cost of rolling resistance and perhaps cornering...and at a possible loss of MPG...

The TIRE DESIGN will have more impact on ride than size....

Sure...now the fun begins researching the dozens of tire choices...just stick with the best models (and highest priced of course) of the best brands...

Considering buying 2002-2006 215/55 R17 OEM Wheels for 1994 Camry Wagon

I have the opportunity to buy 4 17" stock Camry rims from a 2002-2006 Camry for 175. I think the offset goes from 40 to 35. Stock 1994 rims are 5x114.3 bolt pattern which matches the proposed bolt pattern, 6.5" wheel width going to 7" width. Could you please verify my math so I don't purchase these and find out they don't fit. I believe the wheels should fit no problem with 11.4 mm sticking out past stock and only 1.3 mm closer to the strut. The only thing is I'm worried about rubbing with a 19.85 mm loss in wheel gap between top of wheel and strut coil seat.
