Been lookimg at Michelin primacy mxv4 or Bridgestone turanza serenity plus. The closest to stock 225/60r17 size is 235/55r17. Anyone run this size tire? Any rubbing? Any problems other than speedometer difference? Anyone have any experience with these tires? Looking for a little better handling/responsiveness than stock contis. Any other tire recommendations?
Thanks

235/55R17s are 1.25% smaller in height than your OEM, so that's not a problem. 235/50R18s are as wide and very slightly taller than (closer to OEM than) the 235/55R17s, seems to fit my '12 with room to spare, and according to DTC, fit the 4th Gens. I have not turned my wheels to full lock to inspect clearance between the sidewall and the brake line, but they clear the strut by close to 2 cm.
