have you read The WHEEL & TIRE TECH Thread ? There are four suitable tire sizes listed in there, one of them being a 235 width.

I just bought aftermarket wheels, what size tire should I go with?

The following are the most common and popular upgrade tire sizes:

15" wheels = 215/60-15
16" wheels = 225/50-16
17" wheels = 225/45-17
18" wheels = 225/40-18
19" wheels = 225/35-19

These tires are all closest to the overall diameter of the stock tire size and do not interfere with suspension pieces, fenders or any of the above (as long as both the offset of the wheel and the proper ride height is correct). There are other sizes that can be used but they will either be slightly smaller or larger in overall diameter.

I already have tires but want new wheels, can I use these tires on the new wheels?

Here are the safe and recommended rim widths for common tire sizes for the SRT-4. You still need to follow the rim fitment guide concerning wheel offset even when using a less than maximum width tire.

205/55-16 - 5.5"-7.5"
225/50-16 - 6"-8"
205/50-17 - 5.5"-7.5"
215/50-17 - 6"-8"

--> 225/45-17 - 7"-8.5" <--
--> 235/45-17 - 7.5"-9" <--
245/40-17 - 8"-9.5"

225/40-18 - 7.5"-9"
235/40-18 - 8"-9.5"
245/35-18 - 8"-9.5"
225/35-19 - 7.5"-9"
235/35-19 - 8"-9.5"
