Murano rims

Just picked up a set, like new for $100
Now I can save for some rubber.
Anywho what works better for ride quality
225/40 or 225/45 or won't I even notice.
though I think the 40 might be a lil big for the rim.

if you think the 40s will be a little big, the 45s will be way too big!

The 45's will ride nicer, but the 40's will be closer to stock tire diameter

I'm thinkin the rim width is the issue.
I know the 45's will be taller.
On a 7" rim I was thinkin it might be tight gettin a 40 on?
I wanted to try 18's and this deal seemed the cheapest way so now it's figuring out the rubber.

First of all, what diameter and width are the wheels? That will greatly determine what size tires you get. What sort of quality are you looking for? Smooth ride, stiff ride, mudding tires? (sorry, was reading the other post).

I'm not really lookin for anything in specific.
Saw that murano rims fit and looked pretty good so............
Since my OE rims are mounted backwards, 18's seemed the way to go.
Pretty sure they're 18x7".
Which is why i was thinking 45 vs.40, due to rim width.
I was hoping for somewhat better handling due to stiffer sidewall.

I got the mudding tires taken care of thanx.

They are 18x7.5" with a 35mm offset. It comes fairly close to rubbing in the rears depending on your right height and alignment.

might not be a bad plan to buy the used ones and see how you like the ride on that size. that way if you don't care for it, you're not out all that much money.

I bought this exact tire and like it for the ride, noise and traction.
