Those tire sizes are slightly wider and taller than original equipment but they would fit on OEM wheels. For a tire/wheel package you also need to meet parameters such as tire load and speed ratings, wheel widths, offsets, lug nut pattern, center bore, brake clearance, etc.

Thank you for the reply.

I'm not installing those tires on OEM wheels, but aftermarket wheels.

Shop told me that it will fit but they are so far away and I don't want to be end up with tires and wheels that would not fit to my car.

They are the correct tyre wall height for the car as the same as the OEM 19" wheels, but they are wider>>> a few of the guys have fitted the wider tyre as you can read from recent posts!!!

Actually, for a 235/35-19 tire 35 is not the sidewall height. It is the profile which indicates the percentage of the section width that is equal to the sidewall height. A 235/35 is a wider and taller tire than a 225/35.

The OP wants to know if the proposed after-market wheels will fit but provides no information beyond diameter.

Tirerack.com is a decent place to learn about and/or buy tires and wheels that fit.

Understood! I always believe that subject to the wheel diameter that a for example a 19" wheel with a 225/35/19 tyre was the same circumference as a 235/35/19 but not as wide ie 225 to the 235 as this aspect ratio also affects the speedo readings etc... without making it complicated!!!!
