Hi, I'm looking to put knobby/ slightly larger tires on the stock rims and stock suspension of my 2006 V. Any suggestions?

On my Gen.1 CRV, stock size was 205 70 15 and I went 215 75 15 without rubbing, and gave almost an inch lift with no ill effect.

I imagine that increase in diameter is not enough to really affect torque & acceleration... have you noted much difference? Also I'd guess the speedo is off a few mph? But might be nice if you travel off the beaten path much.
