The ET is correct

You can have 225 x 40 x 18 on the front and the rear or you can fit 245 x 35 x 18 on the rear.

The 255 are not correct and a little over sized but OK on 9.5J rims

I see that the 202 uses a 255 tyre on 8.5j rims so why not then on yours.

Just check the clearance from the side of the tyre to the edge of the wing inside, the difference is only 5 mm
