Good summer tire for 18 inch rims?

So i been reading and see a lot of threads talking about 19 inch rims with tire set up. But i have 18 inch rims and ben reading about the 275/35/19 and 245/40/19 i was wondering if anyone tried this set up with 18 inch rims. i read a thread saying the most the 18 inch rims should go is 235 so i'm curious whats a great setup for my 18s.

Thank you so much for answers.

First of all those tire sizes are only compatible with 19 inch wheels. If you want a similar setup, you can go with 245/45/18 and 275/40/18. But that depends on how wide your wheels are. To fit those tire sizes you would need an 8.5 to 9.5 inch wheel up front and a 9.5 to 10.5 wheel in the back. If you have stock wheels you're better off sticking with the factory sizes.

I would say stick with the stock wheels and tires for now, and save up and for a good wheel and tire combo down the road. If you want stickier tires, you could go with a better performance tire in the factory size, but as far as upsizing to wider tires, probably not a good investment on stock 18" wheels.
