I can get 235/65/17 branded m+s tyres cheap and wondered if it would make much difference if I put them on instead of the standard 235/60/17 on my 2012 captiva LT as I don't like the handling on the standard kumho ones ! I know it will change the accuracy of the speedo but will it be that much ?? Thanks Adi

This shows the diameter difference is 23mm or 3.22%. I fitted 235/60/18's in place of 235/55/18's whixch had the same diameter and percentage difference and found no practical problems and it actulally made the speedo dead accurate. Provided you understand that and aren't silly with it, it should be fine.
