Hi all,
I have to change the tires on my beloved 2004 Honda Element EX Manual 4WD. I noticed that a new complete set of 225/60/16 Michelin Energy tires on the Boston CL, but I am uncertain as to the effect of reducing the tire aspect ratio from 65 to 60. Any info advice would be welcome.

Thanks

Welcome, Tobiaszweiss.

The stock size is 215/70-16. A 225/60 is 10mm (0.4 inches) wider than stock and 1.22 inches smaller in diameter. The diameter will throw off your speedometer by 4.38%, not significant but something to keep in mind. Being 5mm wider on each side is unlikely to cause any clearance problems.
