Hello all,

My wife and I just picked up a new 2013 sorento SX and we live up here in Alaska and winter tires in 235/60R18 are pretty hard to find.

I have found some 255/55/R18 tires off a BMW and they have the same radius and diameter but I was seeing if anybody knows if there would be any issues with swapping these tires.

Thanks for any advice.

Kip

Should work. My only potential concern would be that it might rub on the inside when turned all the way to the left or right. I doubt it since you're only talking about a difference in width of 1cm on the inside bead and 2cm overall.

Like the Saurian contributor said, they will be a bit "baggy", but that could be a good thing in your environment. As you have calculated, overall diameter will be almost identical to your existing fitment. -Mush!
