Question ANY problems w/bigger tires on 2014 6spd auto?

Hi!, Ive posted here before with no reply, I realize the tire sizes have been discussed over and over but no one seems to talk about the 2014 2.4 6 spd 4x4 automatic transmission and handling bigger tires. I really like the kumho road venture at51's in a 235/65/17 size. HAS ANYONE HAD ANY TROUBLES WITH THE NEWER NON-CVT AUTOMATIC?

** I went to Chrysler and they said even putting an inch bigger tire on, in diameter ( my stock is 225/60/17 with a 27.6" diameter, I want 29" diameter) will mess with the ABS system I smell bull**** but I'd really love to hear if someone else has the same 6sp Hyundai based automatic and put bigger tires on with no issues.

Non specific to your model/build but its affect on gas millage and performance is far greater than affecting anything else. EG ABS, Speedometer etc.
