For 8.5's all around, I agree with remmib, 235's all corners.

You didn't want a staggered set huh?

Thanks for the reply guys!
The rear wheel is not staggered. I want the staggered look, but I think the CH cost a bit more, and the CK doesn't offer staggered wheel .

Would I need a 10mm spacer to make the setup more agressive?

Thanks

I think it would look a bit weird, if you have 8.5 all around, go with 235/35 all around.

You could go for the Yokohama AVS ES100 at 235/35/19 front and 265/30/19 rear. The company's .pdf on this model tire says that the 265/30/19 size is approved to fit on 8-9.5" wide rims. All the other brands & models I looked up seem to need a minimum 9" rim.
