So my “17 OB is getting fitted with some Motegi mr133s soon. My OB is also lowered 1.5” or so with RS-R springs. I want to go 245/45R18 on my new wheels which are 18x8.5. Would 245/50r18 be better to fill the wheel wells. I’m leaning towards 45 low profile because there a ton more tire options. Here is what my car will look like w the new wheels. Mine of course willl be lower

There is also "pot-hole" rash to consider. 45s are skinny. Denver streets are really bad. Don't want to be fighting rash the whole time with new rims...

Thanks Chris, I never considered that! Our streets suck too, plus this is an year daily driver.
