    Default 215/65R17 winter tire instead of 215/55R17

    My 2015 200 came with 215/55R17 all season tire. I was just wondering can I put 215/65R17 using the same rim? I know this will effect the speedometer reading a little bit but is there any safety concerns?

    Please share your opinion.

    Thanks.

    no safety concerns, but as you said the tire diameter will be different.

    215/55/R17 = 26.3" dia
    215/65/R17 = 28" dia.

    with the larger tires when your speedometer reads 65 mph you'll actually be travelling at 69 mph. the concern i would have is whether or not they'll fit without rubbing something (fender liner, A-Arm, sway bar, etc.). you could always have a tire shop test fit a tire for you. just curious which winter tires are you going with?

    Any update on rubbing issues? I too want to get larger tires like 235/50 or 55/r18
