Different size tires on front
by LINDA LEWIS
(Murfreesboro, TN )
I just purchased 2 new tires for the front of my 2007 Nissan Quest. I just looked at the receipt and they put Honda Odyssey(?)!
I looked up my size tire 225/65R16 they put 235/65R16s on the front. Is this a problem?
Evidently someone either misidentified your vehicle or just wasn't paying much attention when they wrote out your receipt. TG
The difference between a 225 and a 235/65R16 isn't very much. The width of the 235 is 10mm wider, which is less than 1/2 inch if you're still using Imperial measurements. This tire is also a wee bit higher, 6.5 mm, or roughly 3/8 inch. This amount of difference shouldn't cause any significant problems in your vehicle.
Even so, I would be inclined to tell the shop about the discrepancy and point out that under other circumstances an error of that sort could have had much worse consequences.
