Well you don't want a larger diameter, certainly not more than one size if necessary. It will affect the power and gas millage. The CVT is programmed with an expected gear ratio to the road with the spec'd tire size. The more load the poorer the mileage will be (bigger tier will do that even if it does fit) also the CVT many not settle down internally sensing you're still loading it more than expected and keep the rev up a lot longer than you'd want.
Tell your buddy thanks but no thanks.
