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

At 60 mph it will read 60. The 235/65/17 tires are the same diameter as the 235/70/16 tires.
