Tip: The max point reward for answering a question is 15.
The stock wheel and tire is ;
wheel - 17 x 6.5 inches
TIRE - 225 60 17 702 mm diameter
If you wanted a 235 60 17 that would be ok but the tire diameter is larger by a small margin.
If you are reducing wheel size with 16 inch wheels in order to fit the 16 inch tires mentioned in your question you better make sure that the smaller diameter wheel will clear the brakes front and rear.
For a 235 tire the wheel width will need to be 6.5 inches minimum.
So if you go with ...............
wheel- 16 x 6.5 or 16 x 7 inch
TIRE - 235 60 16(as in your question)- 688 mm diameter
Provided the 16 inch wheel clears the brakes that would be OK but that tire is slightly smaller in diameter than stock but within an acceptable margin.
Make sure whatever tire you select that the tire load rating is not less than the stock tire and not less than the tire load rating stipulated by General Motors for that vehicle..
well if its a nascar race car your speaking about then that's called Positive camber !!! and it makes you go faster in the turns ! cus there always turning left !!! if its not a race car your speaking of , then you have a bent front axle it will make the tire loose traction easier and it will make tire wear out faster
Changing tires from the OEM size will cause this,and many other problems as well. Such as steering and handling. You will also be driving faster than your speedometer say`s.Shocks and struts and all the suspension parts will wear faster.Maybe the dealer could remove that display.
They will fit the car but are 2 sizes shorter than original equipment. Will make it ride a little rougher, and may make the speedometer read faster than your actual speed. Probably not a huge effect on the speedo.
Hi, this will lower the centre of gravity of your Jeep, this will in turn make your Jeep handle better on the road, this will also affect your Speedo and mileage slightly. The Speedo will be reading a slightly faster speed and add about 5m to every 1000m actually travelled.
Your speedometer would be incorrect and your ABS brake function would change slightly, it would activate at a lower speed. Fuel economy would suffer slightly at highway speeds.
However, you can take it in to your dealer and they can reconfigure the vehicle to accommodate the smaller tires so your speedo and ABS function properly. They merely have to change the configuration files.
Good luck, hope this helps.
