just picked up a staggerd set of 18's today and had a question about what tires to go with. The backs are 9's and the fronts are 7.5 I think. Ive got quattro so I have to get the same size tire front and back. Im thinking about going 225/40/18 but I was wondering if im gona have to get certain tires to stretch over the 9's or will any tire stretch?

Your wrong, you DONT want to get the same sized tires, you want the rolling diameter to be the same size not the tires. 7.5 and 9 staggered isnt normal, make sure thats the size and i can give you tire sizes.

Not all tires strech well, you want some with curb protectors, toyo's and falken 512 are commonly used.

i has 18's that were staggered and i would reccomend running 225's in the front and 235's in the rear.
