Asked by May 12, 2017 at 01:08 PM about the 2005 Kia Sorento EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2005 Kia Sorento (I know condolences
right?) And the tire size from the factory is
P245/70/16. What impact would it have to run a
P235 on it instead?

No major impact. Perhaps a little less traction and you will lose a tiny bit of ground clearance.

Thanks so much, it just feels a little strange but it's better than onion slick tires.
