I'm replacing tires on a 2008 Honda Element EX. Must I use the same size tire as original, or can I use a larger size without risking drivetrain problems?
2008 Element: Standard tire size 215 70R 16: considering 235 70R 16. I get differing
views on maintaining integrity of drive train.
Why are you considering a different size than stock? The 235's will be approx. 4% larger, so the speedometer will be off slightly showing 2mph faster. I don't see the benefit unless you are getting these tires at a discount cost. If you do make sure you replace all 4, not just 2.
