okay....you NEED to stick to the size as indicated on your door jamb...there are a couple of reasons for this but foremost...the VSS will not know the speed....and the odometer will not read correctly....fact, I'm not even sure if it's legal to run with larger tires on account the odometer will be off..thus indicating FRAUD on the part of the seller....secondly, the harmonics and points at which this suspension puts the stresses will be off by the amount that the tire is off...Number 3, the insurance company would sure like to know if the proper size tire was on there if you are to have a roll-over crash...so in terms of width...sure, but the diameter has to be what is indicated on your door jamb~

Thats insane - of course you can alter the tire size on a vehicle - I DARE YOU TO FIND A LAW AGAINST IT. That is moronic to even speculate - tire shops all across the country regularly change wheel and tire sizes - that entire industry is perpetrating fraud? Come on - think.

Wheel and tire packages are used on cars in aftermarket applications from 12" to 24" and there is no law against it - some of them look stupid and should be against the good taste laws but it isnt a violation of any law or insurance guideline to modify your vehicle. People who dont know what the *uck they are talking about should not even speculate - the internet is full of useless B**lshit information - I worked at a wheel and tire shop for years and we regularly changed tire and wheel size in both terms of diameter and width - there is NOT ANYTHING ILLEGAL.

I also am looking at getting larger tires on my 2013. The car tires on it are so very tame.
