I was thinking about these wheels for my MS3 but I'm not sure about the sizing if they'll work...any thoughts?


I was thinking 225/35/19 tires in hopes of the same outer diameter as stock.

Why not stick with 18s and have good fitment. 19's are too big

Not a fan of 19's on a MS3 either. Look way to big. Plus you'll wind up up with 35 series tires and the ride will be on the harsh side.

Thanks for the input guys, time to switch gears and look at some 18's.

LOL thanks for the input guys, I actually really like these Konig Deception rims

Wheel Details - Discount Tire Direct

Stocks are 18x7.5 these are 18x8, could I still run a 225/40/18 tire without issue?

These look way better than your previous choices. You can run a 225, it might have a slight stretch on the 18x8. I have 225/40 on 18x8.5 and it's barely noticeable, that's with Bridgestone RE11s. @Sublime27 has the same wheels as me and his Continentals have a ever so slightly more stretch to them.
