I purchased a 2014 Honda CR-V, LX trim Package. It came stock with the metal 16 inch wheels and 215 70 R 16 tires. The specs on the tire are: Diameter 27.9 inches Wheel 16 inches Sidewall 5.9 inches Width of the tire 8.5 inches Revolutions per mile 725
I have found a nice set of Alloy Wheels, from a 2014 CR-V EX trim package, that are 17 inch.
If I put the Michelin Defender 215/65 R17 Tires on these rims, and put them on the CRV LX trim package. The specs on these tires are:
Diameter 28 inches Wheel 17 inch Sidewall Profile 5.5 inches Width of the tire 8.5 inches Revolutions per mile 721
If I change these wheels out, will I have any issue. I have had a mechanic tell me that with the speed sensing settings in the computer, that it would cause issue. He recommended to not do it. Can I change the wheels and not have any issue. Or can I change the wheels and tires, and have the computer adjusted to accept the change.
It seems odd to me that an 1/10th of an inch in diameter, 4/10th inch difference in sidewall, and 4 revolutions per mile could have impact.
