God Damn 235s all around ? Thats So Skinny for the rear... Yea Deff move up to 265s or 275 for the rear i mean ive got 235s in the front and a 15mm spacer but even still ima move up to a 245. Being lowered really wont make a difference depending on if you have a full backseat often and plus assuming your going to roll ya fenders you more than likely will be fine.

Too bad your wheels aren't anthracite. That would be a cool color contrast. Could do badges and chrome pieces in the same color too. Looks good the way it is though.
