ummm less sidewall, means less sway, the wider the tire the more contact you have with the ground, makes it alot easier to control with wider tires...the thinner sidewall has a good effect too, its something like the tire has less travel

why not 235/40/18?

cuz 235 will rub most times. you probably could get away with it, but no one wants to rub. my 3000GT had 255.40s on it. thats why u see rear wheel drive sports cars and whatnot with 265s, 285s, 305s, etc on the rear. more footprint.

its all about the grip, if we could fit 255's on, we would, 225 is the widest to go and remain safe without rubbing the fender, on my vette its got 275's in the back and 255's i think in the front, the more you got hittin the ground the better
