I have a set of 18" PSS on my stock wheels in 225/40 and 255/35, and they are both way wider (like an inch) than the stock RFT's in the same size - the rear went from almost a little stretched to a little extra chunky when I switched tires. For that reason, I went with 225/35/19 and 255/30/19 AD08's on the 19x8.5/19x9.5 wheels I just ordered today (since my last post - I wasn't kidding lol).
To me the new PSS doesn't look to run as wide as the old PS2.
