if you go here and click on specs
you will see that that size of a PSS has a tread width of 8.2" so it will probably look/ride/handle best on a 18x8 or 18x8.5 rim (that is, close to the width of the tread.) A wider rim will look stretched; a narrower rim will make it look pinched a little like someone who put 60's on their old musclecar's stock rims. A 235 is exactly 8.5" wide tread width so that would be a darn near perfect fit on a 8.5" wide rim (which is what the previous poster said, just in a different way.)
I also did not know that - treads are measured based on a specific rim.
Thanks again, very helpful!
Sorry for the late reply guys, got sidetracked and luckily found this thread with your replies again.
