I'm ready for some new rubber on my 2007 LS AWD and after alot of reading find myself interesteed in the General AltiMAX HP. This time around I would like to slighty change the profile and footprint and do so without having to go to new rims and larger diameter.
The std. tire size for the ende is the 235/65/17 and this size is available in the Altimax. The next tire size up would be 255/60/R17 and gives me a slighty higher speed rating and adds an additional 300lbs for towing capacity, a possible consideration since I may be moving cross country this year.
I know the difference in the 2 tires sizes I described isn't a whole lot, (about .75 inch width), and believe the 255 width should fit ok. My question is with change in performance and handling, we know this vehicle to be a little sensitive to change. Soliciting any thoughts about the tire size difference of experience with different brands, I don; see a whole lot mentioned here.
Thanks in advance for any comments or suggestions.....
