Tire Fit on 02 EX V6...

I'm a Newbie...
I just picked up an 02 EX V6, will 245/45-18 tires fit on the car with 18x8.0 wheels with 35mm offset? Does a 73.2mm bore fit the car?

I have a chance to buy those rims and i can take em with the tires or without, suggestions please.

Thank you!

Depending on how low you are, those tires are pretty meaty. They will rub if you're lower than 2 to 2.5 inches, if not, you should be good.

Tires will present a problem more than likely if you have any plans to lower the car. The bore is incorrect as well, but can be resolved with a hubcentric ring that converts the bore to 64.1mm.

Thanks for the input!

It isn't lowered yet but I plan on lowering it but only 1.7 to 2.0 inches. I think I'll still get the rims but hold off on the tires.

What size of tires would be ideal for those 18x8.0 rims and the 1.7-2.0 inch drop?? Thanks so much for your help!!

225/40/18 or 225/35/18 are the typical choices.

Thanks Everyone!

What size of tires will have the least amount of effect on the speedometer readings?? Sorry if I'm asking so many questions, I read a lot of the posts gathering information.
