If you are buying a set of wheels and want maximum snow performance (narrower tires with squishier sidewalls), buy narrower than stock wheels to go with the narrower snow tires.
Agreed! I wish I had an extra set of wheels to fit my 235's on. Really not bad IMO but stretched like crazy. The 235 in the front is not bad at all, just the rears are stretched.
