I figured I know that I like to see something before I buy it...and I hadn't seen any pictures in my search so maybe this will help others. I have to say that after a few snowy and icy days I am loving the tires - still not sure I would suggest this size though.

Side shot:


Front Wheel:


Back:


Tread Shot:


Here is the "rub" as they say. It was rubbing on every trun, then we heated the plastic and moved it back a bit...still rubs I think when the car is full and you turn into a bump...like a driveway:


Close at the front of the tire too...can't get a finger in there, but it doesnt seem to rub when the tire moves up and down:


Both the "rub" pics are with the tire at about 4/5th of a full turn.

Anyway...great tire...maybe a nice choice for those that like the AT/S but arent sure they want that aggressive of a tread. I think the 225 would be a better option but looks wise the 235 definitely looks good I think.

I didn't measure them, but Yokohama says they should be 29.1 inches - so about 1.2 inches over stock...but the increased width is what makes them look much bigger.

The plastic doesnt look that way from rubbing...FYI. That's from the heat gun and the crowbar ;)

And out of curiosity I went and measured the diameter...not 29.1 as stated by Yok. It was 28.5.
