Good luck fitting a 18" tire on a 17" rim....

I'm guessing you want stretched look right?

This post is extremely useless and uninformative.

225/40r18 fits on 17" wheel easier than 225/45R17 on 18" wheel.

Please tell me how you intend to keep your dream setup "225/40r18 on a 17 inch rim" inflated?

He wants the look that a 225/40/18 puts off, In a r17 set up

tire height and width of which on a 17. not an r18 on a 17, but a r17 on a 17.

Why does everyone feel the need to dive right in and bash on other people here...

Grow up and help the person out, their just looking for a simple answer, that's all.

To the OP. there are other forum sites out there where your free to ask simple questions without being hated on,,,,find one of those....Trust me

..................................CHEERS!!!

I have no idea what either one of you are trying to say. In that case you can both find other forums to post on. I prefer to respond to questions or post that I can understand.

he wants the tire to have the look on the rim that a 225/40/18 has, but on a 17.. 225/ 35/17????? I dont know, I'm not a wheel tire guy, whatever that setup looks like, he just wants to copy that look but with a 17 inch wheel and tire combo.

It's very simple. You want a 225/40/17 which you shouldn't have any problem fitting on a 17x7 wheel. Not the most popular size, but they do make it.
