235/45/18 vs. 245/40/18

Well, time has come to replace the current, incorrect size, tires on my BBS CHs. I am leaning towards Michelin Pilot Sport A/S 3+ in the 245/40/18 configuration but I would love to hear what others may suggest. I attached several photos of the current tires which are 225/40/18 for reference. Wheels are 18x8 ET 38 all around. I will consider rear spacers after tires are installed.

I'm on 18's as well but with a 30 offset. I prefer 245 40's.

Sup man, I would go with 245 instead of 225 to almost match factory Circumference and it will look good with your wheels, I have 245 on my 18x8.5 and handles pretty good

The original 225 were from the previous owner who stretched them for his car (non TSX). I think I am going to order the 245/40/18. For some reason, I like the peace of mind knowing I have 45 series tires but I know 45 series on 245 will be too much.
It's like you give up sidewall for width or vice versa.

245/40 might look a little pinched off on a 18x8. But that's the correct diameter for the car. I am using them on 18x8.5 +35.
