Looking to replace tires on my 2014 Latitude 4WD. Spec size is 215 55 R18 - has anyone had experience swapping this size with a 235 55 R18?

Diameter is 27.3" vs 28.2", and width is 8.9" vs. 9.7". I'm not concerned about the height clearance, more the width.

Thoughts? Regretting the 18" rims right now! wink:

I have no experience with it. Wasn't happy with 17's, sure wouldn't want 18's.

However. The tires would be approx 20 mm wider so you need an extra 10 mm on the inside of the tire (outside won't be an issue, assuming stock rims). Do you have 10 mm extra on the inside now? I expect it will be fine, but it's easy enough to check.
