Width shouldn't make a difference. I went from 235 45 to 245 40 and with the eibachs my ride is not really any more harsh. What I hear now are the cracks in the road because I lost some of the profile.
It will make a small difference. Remeber the tire size is a ratio, so 235/40/18 means the tire is
40% of 235 = sidewall height
18 is the rim diameter.
So the sidewall on a 235 is slightly taller than a 225. Also a 225 on a 8.5" rim has a slight stretch to it.
I have 225/40/18 on my fronts and 245/40/18 on my rears (in the process of getting new tires) wish I had gone 235 instead of 225.

im a little disappointed because my tires didnt come in today.
i went with continental dws 225/35/19, i had sears match the price on tirerack, but about couple of hrs later i found them about $30 cheaper per each tire on carid.com so hopefully they will match that price ;]
now ill have to wait till they come in on Thursday. ill take some pictures right after i put them on.
It's 90 lb-ft. Also best to re-check/torque after the first 50-miles.
19 x 8.5 et 35
Koni all the way down up front and about 5 threds in the back with full tank.
Ill lower the back When i Get half a tank of gas
I went all the way down up front just to See how it looks, and also to test the noise theory, and Yes i still Get some noise When turning the wheel. I think Its the Springs rubing against each other. Ill put a rubber hose around them to check it later This week.
Ill be also getting 3mm spacers for the front.
