So I'm hoping to get a response quickly, as there's a sale going on until 5/31.

Cooper Lifeliner any size $69.

Problem? They don't make lifeliner's in 215/70/16. But they do make it in 65.

anyone else run this? I don't want the tires to look too small/low profile. If anything I always wanted a beefier tire. But the price may be worth the look!

I know the speedo will be off. according to the calculator, its about 3% fast (if I show 60mph, I'm actually doing 58.2)



Anyone have any thoughts on this?

Its actually 1% smaller still than the 225/70r16, so your inbetween stock (215/70r16) and the 225. That is a good bet, and the 235/70r16 don't rub so the 235/65r16 won't either. Go with those if your going to get any of those tires.

Good deal!

Any idea what the effect the 235s have on mileage? I can't imagine that the extra inch on tire width is good for it.
