Hi everyone. I'd like more options than to keep replacing my OEM Potenza run flats. It seems there are limited options due to the front/rear stagger. Can I run larger tires with my original wheels with the help of spacers...without altering the wheel openings? Thanks!

go with 225/40/18 and 255/35/18s. That's what i ordered. With above you can use the original wheels, i'm not so sure if the spacers need apply.

225/255 would work fine, no spacers needed.

I would recommand you 225/40/18 front and 255/35/18 rear ! Really the moste enjoyable setup I have had !

On standard M Sport wheels, you won't need any sort of spacer.

I hope it could help you bro
