1- Front R17X45X225 , REAR R17X45X235

2-FRONT AND REARR17X45X235

OR

1-Front R18X45X225 , REAR R18X45X235

2-FRONT AND REARR18X45X235


IF I USE 18", ( no lowering at all) and 3 adult set at the back seat any rubbing will happen between the body of the car and the tires?

Man, you're killing me with all those X's!

18's & 19's will fit with the proper tire size.

desi nothing wrong with running two different sizes of tires. Where do you come up with this stuff??
It can throw off the abs sensor if the car is not programmed to utilize two different tire sizes. So for safety's sake, just use the same size.

Plus, its really gay to have two different tire sizes on a FWD car!

Only problem I can see with getting different size tires front and back is that you can't rotate them like same size tires. Same size tires usually last longer since different size tires can only be rotated left to right and right to left.

The 235/45x18's will be best. The others are too small. If you run different sizes front to rear put 245/40x18 front and 225/45x18 rears. Never put smaller tires on the drive wheels than the non-driven wheels.
For those skeptical of differing size tires front to rear, besides all the Porsche, Corvette etc crowd I've been running 245 front and 225 rear since '02 (and before with other cars) and monthly get in plenty of 145 mph road course miles with the combination as well as street mileage. As long as you keep the tire diameter reasonably the same (within 0.25") there is absolutely no detectable difference in braking or ABS. Cornering balance and speeds do increase.
