u can run those tires on either size. depends on what u want....if u want x8...u can if u want to fit a bigger size..liek 245...255..and so on....but if that doesnt matter to u...then just get the 7.5 and u can put the 235 on it....7.5 should be cheaper too.

I run a 235 tire on a 7.5 rim. Fits perfect.

The lip all depends on the wheels, call whoever your going to be ordering the wheels from and theyll let you know what kind of lip you get with those wheels.

Tire size like 03accord said you can run either the 225 or the 235

go with the same size all the way around. for the sake of rotation.

18x7.5 with 235s all around. Will look perfect.



Edit: Unless you do a rear wheel drive conversion, then put some big fatties on the back!

235 with 18x8 should be fine. i actually have staggered wheels where my rear is 18x8 and the fronts are 18x7.5.
