If you run a lower profile tire on your stock wheel 235, maybe, your stock wheel will only allow so wide a tire... then the sidewall comes into play as it will bulge or roll out over the rim and look ridiculous....7.5 to 8 inch wide wheels will take a 235 for sure and I think 245 and look and handle killer... you may also have to change offset of new wheels....wider tires usually means lower profile. Check your rim width...and if done right it won't affect your speedo.
