i poked my fingers around the current tires and i dont see how i can put anything wider on the front or back and keep the same circumference / radius the computer wants.

so if i can make up my mind on a wheel i thinking 245/45 18s.

Default Alternative Tire Sizes

I have a 2001 Monte Carlo LS and I have found it rather difficult to locate decent priced 225/60/16 tires. I went to a shop that sells used/new tires and one of the employees told me he has a set of 4 lightly used tires for $120 "out the door cost", but their size is 205/60/16, and he claimed they would work for my car. I myself am unsure that they would fit correctly on my car, but he said they could be "made to fit" my car. Is this something that would actually work, or should I just avoid it?

Technically it would work, but using 205s would throw off your speedometer at the very least, so I'd reject that deal. The 205s are shorter in terms of overall height.

It seems strange that you can't find "decent-priced" 225s; they're not such an uncommon size. When I was tire-shopping for my Z34, which also uses 225s, I found a good selection of brands and prices.

Check at Walmart I just bought some Douglas all season tires for the SUV I own and they were 235/65R/16 and I got them for 65.00 each new They also have Goodyears for about 25.00 more. Then you could check with a SAMS club too they had some Perelli's that were a bit less than the Goodyears.
