Hey there, looking for some confirmation on some new tires. I have a great deal on some new tires for my TB but I want to be sure the size increase will not cause any problems.

What I've got is what came on my TB from the dealer: 245/70R16
The tires I want to put on are: 245/75R16

Does anyone have any info as to whether or not these tires will be okay to put on my stock 16 inch rims?

I did the same thing and the difference is not noticable. It worked good.

Great

Glad to hear it worked for you, I saved quite a bit with this option too so I'm sure I'll be happy.:woohoo:

It throws off the speedometer about 1.1 miles at 60. The actual speed at 60 registers just under 59 on the speedometer. Your fuel mileage will decrease as well. Other than that, no problems, except that I can't seem to get the tires to chirp any more.
