I've come upon a pretty decent deal for some Michelin Pilots but the size is just a bit narrower and the sidewall would be a bit shorter. Anyone have experience with this size? Any pictures of 225s on Rs? I don't want it to look like I'm riding on rubber bands or end up damaging a wheel in a pothole.

I ran them just fine. No issues, and only about 3% smaller, and less rubbing. A bit more wheel gap FTL though.

you're going to lose quite a bit of initial impact absorption by going to that size. I wouldn't personally recommend it, i've got a 235/40 now and am considering a 225/50 to reduce rubbing and improve ride quality.
