Browsing a few Vitara sites there seems to be a trend with fitting 18" wheel and tyre conversions,
personally I prefer the factory option 215/60R16 or 215/55R17 but if anyone is interested here are the specs.......

As you can see using a 235/45R18 tyre you get the exact same rolling radius but a wider tyre by 0.8" or +9.4% something to take into consideration with the offset of the 18" wheel you choose

Nice looking wheels, not sure how they behave on British potholes.

I have a good contact at Suzuki Italy and on a recent trip they invited me to they were discussing that they are near begging Suzuki Hungary to supply them with Vitara's fitted with factory 18" wheels as that is what customers want, they even said themselves that Italians will put style over function and even if the 18" wheel slowed the car by 20kmh they would still fit the larger wheel confused

Like you say with the UK roads i'd rather have a 16" with more sidewall

Makes it look like a Qashqai. Why would you?

18" looks much nicer.

I had 225 45 R18 under one of my KIA souls and under my other Soul 225 55 R16.

I am also in favor of more side wall.
