Nice choice of intakes. Good idea too, to open up the exhaust, too and let it really breathe!

Juicy B, I just put a set of Hankook RF10 tires that are 235/65/17 on my Compass today. They look really nice and I don't have any rubbing at all.

You should, I've seen dealers spec that size for Snow tires. If you look at a tire conversion chart you may find its not to far off. I posted a link in once of my posts a long time back in snow tire discussions.

Hey guys, does 225/65/17 tires could make any problems?
Why does some Compass come with 215/60/1 and some others with 215/65/17?
By the way, this is for summer tires.
Thanks!

You might want to do some searching. There is a search link in the forum.
I'll point you to a thread this time and if you read you find a link to a calculator site for all size comparisons in detail to whatever reference you input.

Cheers

Yeah I know there is some calculators, I've already been through all of this.
I know it's 5% bigger than 215/60/17 but I wanted to know if this could make any problems.
