Default Proper tire size?

I've been running 225/40's on my 18" Prodrive P1s. I've heard of people running 225/45's, and 235/40's too. I think my rims are 7.5" wide (could anyone confirm?). Is 225/40/18 what I want to stick with?

225/45 is the "right" tire size for a 17" rim, that might be where that number comes from. 235/40 is another reasonable option for 17" if you have wide enough wheels.
