You want to keep the ratio as close to the stock 205-55R16 diameter as possible.

Here's the link to your friendly neighbourhood Miata Tire Calculator site:
http://www.miata.net/garage/tirecalc.html

235-35R18 is pretty close to the 205-55R16 diameter. Only 1.6% off which is within acceptable limits.

Whether you will rub or not is another issue, and is also related to the offset of your wheels.

LaterZ!

It will also depend on the tire. I have seen 245/35's and they work fine, also 225/40. 235's seem to be in the middle. For an 8 inch wide wheel assuming offset is correct I would get at least a 235 wide tire....225 looks a little slight IMO. But fitment of a 225/40 is probably best.
