I'm hoping you can help a fellow .netter on posting pics to see the difference of a 225/35 and 225/40 wall on 18" tire.

Thanks fellas.

Thanks fellas.
are you asking so you can see what size sidewall to get for a set of 18in wheels? cause if so go with the 40 sidewall. typically they put 35's on a 19 inch rim. I have a 225/40/18 on my wheels and its a pretty good size. then again its on a 7.5in wheels for front.

Also the 40 sidewall keeps speedometer correct. correct me if im wrong.

I'm running 225 40's in the front and 255 35's in the rear and there's hardly any difference at all.
