Question about 2005 Ford Freestar
I have a Ford Freestar with 17" rims. I currently have 235/55R17 tires on it but want to know if 215/65R17 tires will work without causing handling or rubbing problems
If you change from the manufactures original tire size, not only will you have steering and handling problems but you will have problems with the performance of the van. The pcm makes thousands of calculations every second to keep the engine running at it's peak performance. These are based on everything remaining original (Tire Size). If you change the tire size it will alter everything the computer does. Including making your speedometer and odometer give you false readings. Your best bet is to stay with the original tires.
