Got them from Tire rack, which has selections for up-sizing to fit-replace OEM tires/wheels.
You can even view your vehicle model and color with available wheel selections.

Glad I saw this - Was your wheel on the 2011 the stock 17" wheels?

I have the stock chrome 7" wheels (225/65/17 OE size currently on) and was wondering if those wheels can take 235/65/17 without any issues...
Seems like they can for sure.
Thank you!

No, I had 16 x 7 wheels originally.

I believe the Enkei rims I bought were 17 x 8.
For the heck of it, you could go to Tire Rack's web site and check their Tire-wheel packages
to see what they recommend for 235 width tires.

All of them recommended packages with wheels that were 7.5" wide. BUT I have seen a post here where someone had 235/65/17 on stock 7" wheels and they didn't report any issues.

I am just worried that if I order 235/65/17 from TR, if the TR recommended installer would refuse to install them or something....

So as far as rubbing issues I don't think I'll have any because they are still on a stock wheel so the offset should still be +40.0mm. I don't think I'll need the spacers for them but I have them anyway just incase the test fit reveals some issues.

I'm going to be putting them on over the weekend as well as some other things so I'll get photos up from the before and after.


Any updates on this? I am planning to get 235/65/17 tires for my OEM chrome 17" wheels (which are the same wheel as your SAP wheel). Just wondering if the install went ok and if there were any fitment issues..
As in if you can get 245/70 on 17" OEM SAP wheels then 235/65 should definitely be OK with my chrome 17" wheels...

Thanks!

Stock fitment was 225/65/17. You'll have absolutely zero issue going 235/65/17 on the stock rims.

The 16 inch stock rims were also 7 inches wide. Those had 235/70/16 tires.

Oh Thanks!

That's good info. I didn't know the 16" OEM rims had that size, and were 7" wide.
235/70/16 and 235/65/17 are pretty much the exact same dimensions according to tiresizecalculator.com
