What is the largest width and profile tyre u have fitted
Oem is 235/55/R19

Im hoping to raise the ride hieght by increasing profile thickness but 235/65/19 is a very odd size and very expensive if any tyres are found.

Would anyone knownof we can fit a 245 on that stock rim ? Thus keeping a 55 profile whichbwould be taller due to the ratio of width .

Thanks

The traction control system will likely throw error code if you change the tire diameter too much. Speedometer will obviously be off too. You can probably get away with 235/60R19.

Going to a 65 aspect ratio is too big a jump unless you go thinner (i.e 225 instead of 235)-- I'll bet money that something will rub. That's a lot of extra rubber to accommodate and the stock size is already a large wheel/tire combo for this vehicle.

I'm guessing here, but a 235/60 will probably work fine, or you might even try a 245/60, IMO that's the biggest you'll want to go. Will probably have to be a trial and error approach, I doubt many people are going larger than the stock 19's.

FWIW, I've never had issues going one size larger on width in any vehicle I've owned, so I'd say 245/55/19 is a pretty safe bet if you want just a little extra height.

245/60 is ok on a 7.5in width rim and up. That's the tire size (245/60/18) on the newer kia tellurides with 18x7.5 in wheels. There is not a lot of tire gap on these vans from the factory. I think 245/60/19 is probably the tallest you can go without rubbing anything.
