Hi, I need some new tyres for my 06 Megane 225. Was just looking around to see what's available and noticed the Megane came from the factory with 235/40/18. I have been looking for 225/40/18 replacements as this is what is on the car currently.

I'm confused now which tyres I should actually be looking for... Am I missing out not going for the 235/40/18? Why would 225/40/18 be fitted if 235/40/18 are the standard fitment?

Thanks

More than minimal. If you like driving fast buy a quality 235 and be amazed.
Is there that much difference Apex? Renault must of put 235's on the cup models for a reason but surely it can't make that much difference?

the 235/40/18 feels havier for the acceleration but better on cornering, the other way around for the 225/40/18 so u decide, it is not that much noticebal unless u have something to compare it to, the cup came with 235 and the lux came with 225. 225/40/18 is cheaper.

Ah that explains it then, as mines a LUX so thats why it's got 225's. The rears are 225's and have a lot of tread left, so I may just change the fronts like for like with 225/40/18 Dunlop Sport Maxx. I've never had 235's so it's not like i'll be missing them/know any difference... Cheers
