2004 GC Rocky Moutain - Tire ?

Guys -

Probably going to need tires by this fall. Since the GC has 17x7.5
Rogue rims on it, would it be ok to mount same size tires as on the
05's? E.g. from 235/65R17 to 245/65R17?

For some reason, the 05's tire/wheel setup looks better. Must be me

How much would it mess with the speedo and/or ABS? Looks like
a .4" diff.

Believe it or not, I've been happy with Goodyear But I've used the TripleTread's on my previous car. They make Tripletread CS's for SUV
and they seem to review a lot better than the SR-A's.

Thanks!

Steve

The 245/65/17 is a 29.5" tire and should fit without issue on your stock 04. I was running a 29.5 on my stock 02 and they fit nicely. There will be a slight difference in your odo/speedo but not a lot. With 29.5s my speedo is significantly over-reading close to 10% and my odometer is about 3% under-reading.
