I own a 2007 Escape AWD,OEM P235/70 R16. I have 17" rims and I don't know what size tires i should purchase to keep speedomerter reading as close as possible
235/70-16 are 28.95" diameter. To keep your speedometer and gear ratios as close as possible in a 17" rim, and keep the same 235mm width, you will need a 235/60-17 which is 28.1" diameter. Close. Your speedometer will read 65 at a true speed of 63

What will the speedometer read with 235/65/17
At 60 mph it will read 60. The 235/65/17 tires are the same diameter as the 235/70/16 tires.
Good afternoon back at ya FoR. That's the site I use... not like I had this in my head already lol ... I just am not sure if the come in 65 profile
