    245/45/18 = 26.695" tall tire
    275/35/18 = 25.591" tall tire
    275/40/18 = 26.676" tall tire
    285/30/18 = 24.743" tall tire
    295/30/18 = 24.979" tall tire

    So, my vote would be for the 275/40/18.

    Which brand and model tires did you buy? I know tire rack shows the weight difference between them as well. Might be something else to consider. At least I do.

    I'm in town the week after next. I'd love to see how the NT05's are. I'm seriously considering some Nitto's but haven't had a go in them just yet. Probably going to do a 255 front and 285 rear. Debating on those, new star specs, rs3's, PS2's, or some racing slicks. Yup I get down like that. I really love my V12 Evo's. Man they are awesome. Really good all around tire. 1.9 60's at the track, good for Autox, rain, and these are great in the snow. When I say good all around tire I mean it.
