Hi

Cheers, OneCent

265/60/18 would be the standard size
245/65/18 will work better in the snow

I don't think you can put a 225 on an 8" wide rim
You would have to check that with the tire manufacturer.

The standard size 18's that come with the ORA II is P265 60 18 which is the same diameter as the P265 50 20's that come on the Overland. If you go to a bigger or smaller size then your speedometer will be off. Her's a site you can use for comparision.

I have done this on another vehicle, but it leaves you with no rim protection. Doesn't look bad on a car. Would look goofy on a truck/suv.

This time of year it might be hard to find any snow tires in 265/60-18 size.
