9.5' is just over 24cm wide so using 235 tires is a bit narrow and stretched already. For 9.5' should use at least 255 tires. For 235 tires, should just use 8-8.5' rims.

hi there, you have a set of really nice rims 18 x 9.5 and should give it a proper set of tires that will make sure that the car runs properly.

Tyres are never designed for stretching so to me there is no proper tyre that is good for stretch and if you must stretch it get the cheapest tyre as the tyre may not last that well. Cheers

As per bro. 6UE5t mention 235/40 best fit is 8 -8.5", however 9.5" is max size to fit. It will stretch slightly.
Tyres that have good traction in dry and wet, then go for UHP or Max performance tyres but they come with a price...:rolleyes:

I just fitted 245/40/18 on 9.5JJ rims yesterday and it looks normal so ... yours will only stretch a bit... If you want to stretch it like those hellaflush cars, go for 225/40/18....

From your priorities stated, sure is PS3 already.
AD-08 are extreme tyres more for track, extreme dry grip, wet so so only. No comfort and noisy...
