I would seriously consider the rubber size. If you're too far off you spedo and other factors will be affect. CVT's seem tuned to a particular size for gearing. If you have typical automatic its likely more forgiving. Note, you do need some clearance for Winter slush and ice buildup. Otherwise you'll have a problem. Duellers and other tires come in many formats 70, 75 and size. I am sure if you look back you'll find the tire calculator link I posted years ago. Otherwise google for one to see what 16 inch size is the same as what you have in 17". Then go from there if you want to upsize and you'll see what each choice results in.
