Default Tires sizes for 18s

Anyone whose rollin on 18s(titans preferably) have tire size 215/35 or 215/40..maybe even 225/35??

I have titan wheels with 225/40s..but id like to get some smaller wheels so that they dont rub on my panels as much and just cuz less tire looks better. Just dont know if it gives a crappier ride quality...

I don't have titans but I have 215/35/18's and they're just too damn small IMO.

I just put the wheels on the datsun, they were on my HB. They ride pretty damn rough and I imagine a small pothole would be devastating

I think they look good thou..but yea potholes are my concern. I was hoping to narrow my tire wall a lil but maybe ill just stick to 225/40..maybe reduce it to 35 at least.

I'll never run anything smaller than 225/40/18 which will make the sidewall flush with a 7-8" wide rim (not sure how wide Ttian's are). It's just not worth damaging your wheels and fearing every little hole in the road, not to mention the terrible ride.
