LARGER TIRES?

I have a 2012 SRX with the performance (sport) package and 20" wheels...car came with 235/55R20's and I am looking to go wider with a little taller tire for a little more comfy ride...anyone on here do this?...and if so, what size and brand did you go with?...thx in advance...

Can't imagine it would be an issue as long as it's not radically taller or wider.

I went from stock 20s to stock 18s and the ride is much smoother.

Re: LARGER TIRES?

she loves the look of the 20's...just wants to fill up the wheel wells a little more and possibly a little more comfy ride...

Re: LARGER TIRES?

Bought the Pirelli Verde all season plus....255/55-20's....nice...more comfortable...did notice the struts are "weeping"...car has just over 50K on it....GM won't cover it...even though she had her tires rotated by the dealership about a month ago and they never informed her...

Did the tires rub at all? Any negative side effects seen with running this size? Thanks.

no rub at all....the new tires actually look correct and IMO how these vehicles should have come from the factory....very smooth, comfy and quiet....they fill up the wheel wells much better
