Is it ok to put 16 inch wheels on my 2006 caravan? It came with 15 inch stock wheels. If so does it affect speedo, by how much? Thank you

Tire height doesn't change with bigger dia. rims, only the sidewall aspect ratio. Example: 15X50 series tires are as tall overall as 16X45's & so on. 17's would use 40 & 18's use 35 series see? Just the sidewall gets smaller.

You can get bigger wheels, just try to keep the tire diameter the same. For example my car has two different wheel options. One is a 18inch wheel and the sport wheel is a 19inch. The tire sizes were: (18) 225/45R18 (19) 235/35ZR19 These are dealer options. A tire place you use should be able to answer your question based on what you want to put on it. You MAY have to have it calibrated.
