360 tire size refresher

I need a refresher on the original tire size on a '99 360 with stock Starfish wheels.

I replaced my tires a few years ago with 215/40-18 fronts; 275/35-18 rears. I seem to recall at the time I went one aspect ratio size smaller but now I don't remember. What is/was the correct tire size for the 360 Starfish wheels?

Also, has anyone put 225 front and 285 rear on the stock Starfish's? Usually one size wider isn't a problem but I'd like to know if anyone has done it.

Thanks.


FOOTNOTE: Overall tread width isn't always the same for the same size tire. I just bought new tires for my 993 S (widebody). Stock size is 225 front and 285 rear. I bought Yoko AD08's, same size, yet they are just slightly over 1 inch wider tread width than the "same size" Sumitomo's I'm replacing. I love it.

My car has 215/45-18 fronts and 275/40-18 rears, which I believe are the OEM sizes. That is consistent with the tire pressure sticker on the door, which would probably be a good place to check to be sure.

Of course.......I thought of checking the door sticker after I posted. It's right on there, and it is indeed 215/45 and 275/40.

Thanks for responding.

Thanks Terry.


Has anyone here gone one tire size wider on the stock 360 Starfish wheels?
