235/60-18 or 255/55-18.

I use Falken 255/55-18's, purchased them from Discount Tire Direct online on eBay w/ 8% cashback and 2% ebay bucks back.

The 255/55-18 is pretty much exactly what you need for an 18" on this truck.

BTW, you should see what OEM RX8 wheels look like on a Tribute. Man, it should have been an option at the factory!

If they fit the RX8 perfectly, they will almost 100% likely fit the Tribute, no problem. Trust me.
