a place to start, but not always the place to end: is www.tirerack.com

You can research wheels based on their price, offset, diameter, width, looks, and it will usually recommend tire sizes for the wheels as well, although tirerack tends to be overly conservative in what tire sizes they recommend for certain wheels.

If you find a set of wheels or tires that you really like, i would shop around for a better price, unless you want tirerack to mount and balance your wheels with choices of tires so all you have to do is put them on the car.

On tire rack, find the brand and size you want to buy...under the specs section I think, it will tell you what size rim it will fit on.

A 235 *should* fit on a 7.5...but it would be the maximum you should probably put on it. I run a 225 on a 7" with no problems.
