Searched but No luck. Anybody running this on stock rims? Can you post some pics and problems running that tire.

It should work but it's gonna have some bulging on the side. Why not get 225 45 17, or better yet upgrade your rims to 17x8.

Im running that setup. no cons but be careful what tire you choose, Ive heard bad things if you dont go with a good summer performance tire

Go with OEM 215 or 225, too much bulge with a 235 on a stock rim thats only 17x7.5.

Correct me if im wrong, but isnt our stock rims 17x7. I bought some 225's a while back and im kinda nervous putting them on our stock rims.
Oh my bad, you're right - they are 17x7. That makes 235's seem all the more excessive.

yes stock is 17x7, 225 will work fine. the tsx a-spec comes with 225.
aren't the a-specs 17x7.5 meaning they would be better suited to the 225s?

235 is only 20mm more then stock 215
20mm = 2cm = 3/4" so something like 3/8th of bulge on aether side of the tire. I dont even notice.

Dirty Tires lol.
