That is what I just put on, 225/65R17. I would say on the road the difference isn't hardly noticeable. I did feel like I was sitting slightly higher, probably only in my head because it really only adds slightly more than a half inch to ride height. Road noise, slightly more road noise due to it being an A/T tire with larger lugs and them being new. I think the little bit of noise will disappear once I get some miles on them. Acceleration, possibly just slightly less due to the extra weight and size of the tire, but again not real noticeable. My speedometer is slow by 1-3mph depending on speed. I don't know if you'll notice any of these things or not, I'm really nitpicking here.

Thanks for the reply. My main concern was the on road performance differences since the tire size is a bit different. So I'm assuming you haven't had any issues with braking? Also, any huge differences in mpg? I know there would be a slight difference because of it being an all terrain.

Edit: Forgot to add if you have any tire rub as well.

I haven't noticed any increase in braking distance. It will be a couple weeks before I can figure out any effect on mpg but I'm sure it will be minimal. There is zero tire rub. I like them a lot, I'm looking forward see how they handle the snow this winter.

Sweet, thanks for the input. I've been trying to find a good A/T tire for my wife because she likes the more aggressive look of the tires.
