215'S on a 7.5 rim will give no stretch at all. I have 205/40's on my current wheels and again, there's not really any stretch to speak of. I'd say 195/40's if you want the look with 215/40's on the rear..

The only thing is mate we not sure of the width wheel he has on there if he has 235 tyres on there at the min with no stretch its going to be at least a 8" wheel I had 8.5" wheels on 225 tyres and there was no stretch I put a 215 on it and it was nice but needed a bit more that's y I said a 215/4017 would suit the gent and on the rear a 245 is a 9" wheel sotputting a 225/4017 on it will stretch it but not major but that's just my opinion :)

I reckon it's a 7.5 and should be on a 225 rather than a 235. Difficult to say for sure!
