Can I use a 235/65 r16 on a Mercury Mountaineer that currently has a 245/70 r16?

Asked by Rich_E_Rich May 29, 2018 at 01:17 PM about the 2002 Mercury Mountaineer AWD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have some newer tires on my 2007 Chevy Equinox that I just had replaced
last year. My Equinox needs a new motor and I don't think it's worth replacing.

They will fit but are narrower than recommend, you should also check the load rating of the smaller tires, they may not be able to carry the total weight. Personally I would not do it.
