Recently I won a certificate for a set of Kumho tires.
Kumho does not make 265/40/18.( Rear) What would be an alternate size

265/40s have too high of an aspect ratio (sidewall to width). You would want 265/35s on an 18 inch wheel, so that you don't have a large bulging sidewall. Just be careful of holes in the road.

I'm presently running 235/40s up front and 265/35s on 18 inch wheels. Next time, I think I'll stuff some 275s or 285s on the rear.
