So comparing a 225/40/19 tire to a 235/40/19 tire, the second one would have a taller sidewall height correct?

And a 235/35/19 tire would have less sidewall height than both of those?
Correct on both counts.

Default Re: Anyone Run 235/40/19 on 8.5" up front

Anyone have pictures of a 235/40/19 and 265/35/19 setup on stock suspension?

I want to get some CSL reps that are 8.5" and 9.5" wide and don't want to run the 245/275 combo. Looking to still have good steering response and less tramlining. If I went with CSL specs 235/35/19 and 265/30/19, I think my car would look to high. The profile of the tires on the stock setup is closer to the setup I listed at the top of this post.
