Tire size: 17x8 et35
 
Hello!

My usual wheels are:
18x8
et35
215/40
Slightly stretched tires, barely rubs, and the ride is awful.

I swapped on another set of wheels,
18x8
et43
225/40

No stretch, rubs a lot, and the ride quality is much better.

On H&R ultra lows.

I can get the 1st set in 17" instead of 18". Same et35. Any suggestions on tire size? I'm thinking increased sidewall would restore some ride quality, but would I need more stretch because of it?


Thanks!
