Obviously, you will need a certain type of tire depending on how you use your vehicle. Because of this, a 235 tire may not be better than a 225 tire, or vice versa, but depending on your situation, one tire may serve you better than the other.
Since a 235 tire is a wider tire, it allows for more stability on the road while accelerating. This is especially useful for larger vehicles, such as Land Rover.
The difference in weight between the two tire sizes is negligible. The weight of the tires should not influence your decision.
If you are considering fuel consumption, you will want a tire with less rolling resistance. The 225, being thinner, has less rolling resistance than the 235.
In terms of cars, you want to know how much cargo you can carry. Cars that can carry a larger load need 235 tires. Cars that need less load may have 225 tires or less.
Assess your needs
If you have a smaller car and want to save gas, you will want a 225. If you have a larger vehicle and need more stability, you will want a 235.
