This exact question has just been discussed at length, except perhaps the make bit.

265/35R18

would not put them on as the ride is to harsh, stick with 17s. the volk 18" and lower profile rubber on mine dont cut it on crap british roads.

Mine came with 17s and they were worse than the 18s. I suspect there is variance due to tyres etc.

I'd agree that given the choice 17s would be a better bet than 18s but that wouldn't put me off 18s.

Someday I might give 18" a whirl, but I already have far more handling for the roads than I would need with 255/40R17. It's pretty jarring but that has as much to do with my Ohlins as anything else. Actually, come to think of it, tire makes a difference. I used a set of Advans Neovas, the ride was a bit smoother but they wore out extremely fast. I have Kumho Ecsta SPTs now, and although they spin more going on launches (meaning they grip less and hence make the car a touch slower on take-off), the car feels more stable in hard cornering (even if max lateral Gs might be a touch less, I have a lot more feel and confidence). But best of all, they LAST. I bought my tires three years ago, rotated them last year, and I've only used about 2/3rds of the tread.

Oh, and they are worlds better in bad weather - rain/sleet/snow. They're no Blizzaks mind you, but certainly not greasy like the Yokohamas were in the rain.
