Default will 235/50/18 make my wheels look bad?

I ordered the 235/50/18 for my machined AMR 18s because thats the only all season tire AM guys have, but i talked to a girl at AM and she said it will look bad and skinny....do u think it will be ok?

did i waste 500$ on ugly tires??

im keeping the car at stock height, so will 235/50/18 look okay? what size should I get? which tire size will make the wheel gap look the least bad?

well, its getting cold outside again...****in reached down to the 40s the other day.  almost can't wait for the snowy stuff............................almost i don't have a twitter account nor have i ever been to a twitter web page (update: i have), but if i ever did decide to take the plunge i will let you know by posting it in this awesome little box of text (update: not really)! i like tacos lol...though between crunchy tacos and soft tacos i cannot really say which one is better.  sometimes, the mess a crunchy taco leaves behind is a little annoying while the soft taco just doesn't have the same taste... cake is so much better than pie no, srsly.  **** pie. ****ing

I don't think it will look 'too' bad...this guy has a yellow with amr 18 with same tire size as me, except he is charcoal, and i think it looks cool, jsut psises me off cus everytime i spend money on a mod someone always has to say what i should have done different or what i should have done.... and with almost EVERY PICTURE, someone pops in "oh...It needs to be lowered."

Click the image to open in full size.

and when u think about it compared to most other cars on the road, 235 is a pretty wide tire. to me the 255 tires look like a monster truck.

...well on a lighter note those look good on that car.

Those should be a good size.

Someone can always say that you shoulda done this or that but sometimes just make your decision and roll with it. Tires arent a huge deal.

Mine 2012 came with 235/50/18 just like the yellow car pictured above. I am a big fan of wide tires and someday maybe mine will see wider but for now they ar ok.

You'll be fine. It's the same size as stock (or very close to it).

Stop worrying about what others think. There are always people who will dislike your car for anything. People hate my car just because it's a Mustang and nothing I do or say will change that but I certainly don't lose any sleep over it.

P.S. This is the internet folks. You're going to get made fun of no matter what you do. On the same note, people need to stop antagonizing. I predict this thread will be locked and/or someone will be banned.
