Dear all,
I'm from Italy and I own a 2010 Mondeo (facelift version, four doors, TDCi 163 Hp) which fits standard alloy
wheels (8"x18", ET=55) with 235/45-18" tyres (while the old 2007
version fitted 235/40-18" tyres).
Considering that I fitted Eibach springs (30 mm lowering) if I install
8.5"x18" ET=40 wheels could I have rubbing problems between tyres
and wheel arches or can I fit these wheels on my car without problems?
I found a lot of image in the web-site with this setup, but all these Mondeos fitted 235/40-18" (pre-facelift versions) while I don't find nothing about 2010 version (facelift, 235/45-18" tyres).
My doubt is about rubbing between tyres and wheel arches for the excessive tyre "height" (/45 instead of /40).
Please help me in this topic, because I'm ordering the new wheels (Tomason TN1).
Many thanks for your kindness!

Dear all,
I have just installed Tomason TN1 (8.5x18" ET=40) wheels with 235/45-18 tyres on my MK4 Mondeo (facelift 2010 version).
All is ok and the look of my Mondy is fantastic!!!!!
