18" Tire Choices ?

I'm thinking of replacing the OEM 215/55-18s with these 235/55-18s.

What size, make, model 18s you folks running ?

They are going to be too wide without wheel spacers to kick the rims outward. You will rub on turns.

9" is max width on tires for the Compass/Patriot without mod's and even that can result in some rubbing at full lock.

The 235's are 9.25" wide. Height wise( OD )you would be ok. Width they aren't going to work.
