Upsizing tires on factory rims

6552 Views 33 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  Squishy
I've got the factory 235/70/16 Goodyears on aluminum rims on my Escape still, and they're getting a little slippery in the rain and I've started looking at new tires. I'm considering keeping the stock rims and putting a slighty wider tire on there. I remember hearing the rim can handle a 255 width but I'm not sure what the sidewall would be? 60? I'd like to stay near the factory overall height. If anyone knows thanks!

Does anyone know how large of a diameter you can go without interfering with anything or making any changes?
