Default Direzza Sport Z1 Star Spec

I have put the Mazdaspeed spring kit and sway bars on my 2009 MS-3. Looking for comments on putting the 225/45/18 star spec's on. Any fitment issues and thoughts on the tire for an every day use?

225/40/18s will look better, but make your speedo read faster than you're actually going. I run 225/45/18s on my stock rims in the winter with no issues.

And preform better. Will not have issues with 225/40/18's either, that's what I'm running on stock rims.
