Hi, I own a 2008 Ford Escape XLT FWD and I'd like to put on larger rims and tires for next summer. Would a

At that size your speedometer would change. Marginally at slow speed. more noticeable at hwy speed. I would read slower then what you are actually going. You can have the pcm adjusted at a dealer for the tire size you are using. Your factory recommended sizes are: 245/50/R20 255/45/R20
