My new to me 2004 CRV with 38K has 10 year old tires. Hard and noisy! OEM size is 205-70/R15. The quiet goodyear tire I want isn't made in that 205 dimension, but is made in 215/70/R15. The speedo difference is negligible. Can I "upgrade" to the 215? My wheels are OEM 15". Thanks for any advice.

Long as you replace all 4, one size taller wont hurt anything. This is especially important if you have AWD, different size tires will damage the rear differential (by overheating the clutches inside).

Virtually any NEW tire is going to be noticebly quieter than a 10 year old tire.

Just as a second confirmation, yes you can certainly go to the 215, however as Carbuff2 stated make sure you swap all 4 at the same time.
