255/40R18 Tires

Finding and buying the right tires for your vehicle involves a little bit of planning. This is because you need to find what works for you in just one tire size range. Yet, that does not mean that your options are limited. In each tire size, drivers can easily get the perfect fit for their cars, SUVs, light trucks, or specialty vehicles.

255/40R18 Tire Size Explanation

  • 255 - This number represents the tire’s width in millimeters, measured from one shoulder to the other. In this case, the tire’s width is 255 mm (10.04 inches).
  • 40 - The aspect ratio is expressed as a percentage of the tire’s height to its width. A 40-aspect ratio means that the tire’s height is 40% of its width (in this case it is 102 mm / 4.02 inches).
  • R - This indicates that the tire was manufactured with a radial construction, which is the most common tire construction type used today.
  • 18 - This last number denotes the diameter of the wheel in inches. This tire was manufactured to be mounted on 18-inch (457.2 mm) wheels.

Factors to Consider When Choosing 255/40R18 Tires:

It is important to match the tires to the vehicle’s needs, but tire size is not the only factor you have to consider.

Vehicle Compatibility:

Check the owner’s manual for the tire size suitable for your vehicle, as 255/40R18 tires might not work for it.

Tire Type:

After deciding on the tire size, figure out whether you need snow tires or all season tires (maybe even summer tires) for your specific application.

Tread Pattern:

The optimized tread pattern of 255/40R18 tires helps improve the vehicle’s performance and driving safety.

Budget:

Create a reasonable budget and stick with it. This will narrow down your options, while also preventing you from overspending.

Brand and Quality:

Depending on the tire brand you purchase, you will get different quality tires. For this reason, it is important to do some research before buying the tires.

Load and Speed Rating:

Matching load ranges, load indexes, and speed ratings to the vehicle’s needs is crucial to ensure a secure performance.

Tire Maintenance

Proper tire maintenance is crucial to ensure the tire’s lengthened usability. This helps protect the tires from tread and external damage.

Conclusion:

If 255/40R18 tires are the correct size for your vehicle, don’t forget to consider other factors as well. When every tire puzzle piece is placed where it belongs, 255/40R18 tires offer exceptional performance, handling, and traction. This results in a safer driving experience as the tires are specifically chosen to optimize the vehicle’s performance, the driving habits, and the vehicle’s ability to perform in different weather and road conditions.
