I have a 2000 AP1 with the standard 16" wheels. I would like to upgrade them to a 18" wheel. I thought this would be straight forward but I'm getting conflicting information; Someone told me it would be fine to run the new wheels with the same size 255/40/18 tires all round where as someone else told me not to muck around with the tire sizes as it affect the car handling?

Has anyone upgraded to 18" wheels with the same sizes tyres front and back and if so has it had any effect?

Cheers
I had 18's for a while. I believe I had 225/45 in the front and 255/35 in the rear. I am positive about the rear size, just can't remember if the fronts were 45 or 40's. If you go on the Tire Rack's website and size an S2000, I believe it will tell you the recommended sizes for 18's.

You don't want to go the same size all around if you drive aggressively. Early AP1's are very well known for snap oversteer. If you put even more grip on the front, you better be really ready for a ride from the rear. Or, you better make suspension setup changes to compensate for te extra grip.

I have been using the Potenza RE760 tires on my S2K for the past year. They seem to do a great job for the price (which is considerably less than that of the OEM Potenza's). I didnt change the sizes at all. Anyone else use these?

You'll get along with JJ. He swears up and down on Potenzas.

The MY01 I am strongly considering will, if I make the purchase, get new skins the same day. The car has 16,384 miles and the tires are the originals.
It is a tough find the 245/45/16 for the rears. I'll keep looking...

Very few options if going 245/45/16 in the rear. 245/50/16 brings in a few more choices.
