    Hi,just wondering what tyre size i should have on 18" monoblocks to go on a c43. Alloys are not staggered,think 8.5j all around.

    18" on a C43 should always be staggered. Question of style IMO.
    Where did the Mono's come from? Can you check the ET? This is stamped on the inside of the rim.

    Alloy wheels direct suggest 225/40/18 front and 255/35/18 rear even though the wheels are the same size?

    Since the wheels are the same size all round I would go with the 225 all round.

    Agreed but 235 would give a bit of needed rim protection:crazy:

    235's will/can rub on a C43, I say this as some people report that they only rub very slightly on suspension compression at speed, others state they rub everytime going round a bend and in my case 235s never rubbed at all until I had a new gen wing fitted, and even with the arches rolled as they should be they would rub near as dam it all the time, far safer to stick to 225s at least on the front.
