Yeah I can't figure out the sizes either but I was wondering if those Continental road tires would even heat up on a 40-60 second auto-x course? Probably not

645 is tire height in mm., not aspect ratio, 25.4"

285/645R18 is between 30-profile and 35-profile.

285/30R18 should give you a tyre diameter of 628.2mm and
285/35R18 should give you a tyre diameter of 656.7mm

so the aspect ratio is somewhere around 33%

My formula for tyre height in mm is:

2*((Section Width * Aspect ratio)/100) + 18*25.4

These would almost be worth buying and having shipped here as the price is actually pretty good, even allowing for freight and import taxes.
