Hey

See your local tire dealer, or go online. There are many self help resources there which can assist you with your question and identify the options available.

235/50/18 is a popular tire size thus low prices and lots of choices / some of the option sizes you might consider like 245/50/18 seem to run 50-75 a tire more . then get into a 255/40 and the prices are even higher .. just keep in mind some sizes will lower your car which I dont think it needs . a wider tire is goingt to need more steering input at low speeds. I personally think the car can use a little taller tire and that they fill the fender openings better with a 1/4 inch to 1/3 inch taller tire. The car still sits low enough
here is a good comparsion you can type in the size tires you want to consider. then look st the price and see if the increase is going to be worth it and what options you have . I run 245/50 18 on one car with no notice of change
