you wont have any space problems around the arches by using the 235/60/17.it has only a 10 mm wider road surface.the car will brake better and you will have a better steering wheel response.One of the best(and maybe the best tire) on that dimension is the Pirelli Pzero Assimetrico if we are talking about summer tires..i cant help u if u aare looking for an all round or winter tire because i live in greece and i see snow every 10 years!

oem sizes - gotta check the mfg specs!!!

thodoriscrv- thx i need all season - yaasooo!

thx to similiar post i disregarded those calculators and checked original and mfg specs for particular tires.

after comparing OEM specs
and the mfg specs for replacement
it seems just fine.

also the mfg spec on the 225 65 17
has the same outside diameter as the 235 60 17
why how i do not know but that it their published and confirmed specs with this one particular tire

only difference smaller sidewall
slightly wider

also .....$25 bucks cheaper than the 65r

so save $100, slightly better steering, handeling.

Change to 235/60R17 from standard 225/65R17?

Looking to get new tires for my 2007 CRV. A couple of places have recommended that I change from the non-standard size 225/65R17 to the 235/60R17. Has anyone out there done this? Pros or cons?

forget calculator use tire specs!!!

look up original equipment specs
the overall size in a cooper cs4 is the same as my original contitrac
+1/2 inch wider


recomendation IS TO USE tires that= to original equipment sizes
so you have to look at individual tire specs of what you may be buying, i can only speak in this instance of the coopers

i was told that most retailers would not install tires outside of parameters but take that for what its worth.
