thanks for the link SiR !!

but it says Speedometer1: 59.1 mph 98.6 km/h
Speedometer Difference: - Speedometer Difference: 1.400% too slow
Diameter Difference: - Diameter Difference: 1.39%

stock 225/45/17

one i want to put on - 235/45/17

1.400% too slow...is that big of a difference or is this okay?

yes they will fit and no its not a big deal.

3% is typically the the max you want to go up or down. and their calculator will pop up a box if you input something that goes past that.
