I am thinking of going one tire size up to 235 from 225, mainly for aesthetic reasons. Is that recommended? and would it have any negative or undesirable effects on any of the handling characteristics of the STi?

Negative Things to consider:

1. Wider tires can weigh more = slower acceleration.

2. Wider tires tramline more.

3. Wider tires hydroplane more.

4. Wider tires cost more.

5. Depending on the tire, it may look sort of puffy on a 7.5" wheel.

There are a lot of plusses also, but you asked for the negatives, those are the ones that come to mind. : )
