Running 235s w/ a Hemi

Hey Guys,

My door sticker says my 06 Hemi came with 245/65/17s. I found a set of practically brand new Jeep wheels with General Grabbers on them. The tires have about 6-7/32's so I was just going to run those new wheels/tires without unmounting them and remounting my existing tires. Problem is they are 235/65/17s. Tirerack says that this was an available size for my model, but I'm wondering if there are any major issues running 235 vs 245s.

Thanks

Haha I know. But am I going to suffer any major performance losses, handling, etc.?

Logically, they'll weigh less and put you closer to the ground... Which makes them easier to turn, slightly increasing fuel econ and negligibly increase performance.
I see no downside here unless you're going offroad, which I'm assuming you're not.
