Tire size alternate
The slow process of buying winter tires for my new Accord has begun. I also have a 2011 Sonata which I run General Altimax Arctics on and would like to get the same tire because the price and performance is right for me. Unfortunately, the Generals don't come in the EX-L size (225/50/17) and my shop is out of the LX 16 inch tire size as well (215/60/16).
Now Tire rack says that I can run the same size on my Accord as I do on my Sonata (as an alternate) 215/55/17 and I can find those ones in stock. Can anyone see a major issue with this size? Speedo may be off a bit but I think it is ok on new steel rims.
Thanks for the help!!
