I want to put a set of 17s on my 2014. I was given a set of 225/65x17 tires brand new. After putting them up against the factory 16s they look like they will be too big. I like the fat tire look over the thin tires. Should I just have them mounted up and see what they do? Or can someone recommend a different size tire for a 17 wheel?

I see alot of people run a 19 or even 20 inch wheels on these cars. I will be lowering the car by 1.5inchs soon.

Thanks

I'd say sell them and purchase the correct size. The OEM 17" size 215/55-17 is 26.3" diameter, I have 225/55-17 26.8", but the 225/65-17 is a whopping 28.5".
Way too tall and would have a 5 mph difference in speedometer.
