Can a 2000 Intrepid, made for 225/60 (R16) tires handle 235/70 tires? They are almost 2 and a half inches taller (and nearly a half inch wider)? I presume I'll need to beware not to get a speeding ticket as the larger tire will show a slower speedometer reading, I think almost 9% (so at a 78 mph reading I'll be moving near 85 mph). But will the taller tire hit the wheel-well when turning or when hitting bumps while driving? Thanks.
