For 18x8,5 u could go for 235/40/18 to stay very close to 235/45/17 radius.

what would be a near exact swap? as i cant find the chart anywhere. or is that it?

225/40/18s are £100 cheaper for the same tyres.. would they be no good then?

They'd be too narrow for the rim width really.

What size tyres doe the X's have on these rims?

I'd use that and go backward in terms of profile to get a decent match for the VII original rolling circumference using this: http://www.miata.net/garage/tirecalc.html

ill have to ask what the x tyre size is mate
i take it 235/45/17 is the standard 7 size?

245/40/18 for the X on these rims. But +1,3 to 1,5% taller. I wouldn't go this way.

235/40/18 would be the closest to E7 standard 235/45/17 size (only +0,2 to 0,3%) and a perfect fit for ur E7 + 18x8,5 rims.

225/40/18 are -0,9 to 1,2% and they fit 7.5 - 9' rims. In my opinion, though shorter/narrower, they will fit ok to ur 8,5' rims. If u prefer them then go ahead but not all types are £100 cheaper than 235 (camskill).

U can also check these dimension data:
