Anyone know if 245/40R18's will fit on a 2006 2.8T Aero? I don't want any rubbing but I'd like to go from 235's to 245's...

I think 235 is the biggest we can fit.

I have 235/40-18 on my OZs and they rub very little at full turn too.

I wanted 19's but there isn't much of a selection. I finally settled on these. I got a really good deal from tire rack so even if I didn't like the wheels I wouldn't be out that much. Turns out that I do like them. Just put them on yesterday but I'm worried about how well the machined surfaces will hold up in the rain (i.e. rust)

These are ASA AR7 19x8 wheels with 235/35R19 Continental Extreme Contact DWS tires.

I was expecting a much rougher ride but I don't notice much difference.

No, that's for a set. They look so much better in 19's.

Trollspeed, what is that black strip on your lower front spoiler? Is that a part you can buy separately because it would come in handy with my new front lip.

Oh, good catch. I'd also like to know about this... I'm waiting for the day that I finally scrape up my front lip when I'm inching into parking.

Here is the strip in close-up. It is carbon folie (3M). I made it my self because the spoiler was a little scratched. I must do it over, just did it in 10 min time...........

Good idea on using cf vinyl for your front lip, EJ!
I have h&r springs and when I had my 16's I was much lower to the ground and now have a couple scrapes and cracks
I may do this along with my roof spoiler to match...

A little of Topic but I did a experiment on my roof spoiler to keep the rear window kleen (it get's very dirty when driving in rainy wether....) and it worked





Don't try this at home You will get real downforce............
