Hmm. I can try that. I don't know if they would let me do that without buying the tire first.

Short answer, maybe? Measure the overall dia. of your P235/75's (hight). Drop down to 45 or 35 series sidewall ratio tires for 18" rims. I did this on a Mini Cooper S with 225X35XR18 BFG G-force KWD tires. 75's are much to tall ! Nitto 50-50's might even fit. See Discount Tire online or in person, They are very good with plus or oversized tires & custom wheels. See my Chevy sb lowered truck shown. 17" Nitto's staggered 225 & 275's.
