Default Test fitting 235/40/18's on Electric Blue

Since my factory original tires are 13 years old, and the fact that I can never leave anything in stock form, I ordered one 18x7.5" wheel for test fitment. Tire size is 235/40/18. I just got them on with enough time for a couple of photos before dark. Haven't even made the block yet to see if it rubs anywhere. Anyone else running HD Spinouts in the 18" size? They make several colors. Like or dislike?

I always really have liked the stock GT wheels, but those aftermarket wheels are okay. Especially since the blue is similar to the body blue. On the 18s I had on one of my 03 Gts when I bought it, they were 225/40/18 and fit perfectly. I don't know the specs of those wheels.

Love the color and I think it gives your PT an awesome look. If they don't rub, go with a full set.

I drove around a bit and didn't hear or feel any rubbing. I went ahead and pulled the trigger on another 3 wheels... I like the factory original wheels too and plan on boxing them and storing them away. Just gotta be different, I guess.

Hey Myckee, I think the 225/40/18 and 235/40/18 are basically the same tire with the 235's being just a tad wider. Next, I just need to be on the lookout for potholes.

Be sure to post some pics of that bad boy when you get all four on it. I'm sure it's going to look awesome!

The wheels and tires are all on now... Lots of rain here in east Texas for what seems like almost every day. I'm gonna post some better pics once she gets her next bath. So far, I've not heard any rubbing.

That's one of the best looking PT's I've ever seen. I love it.
