My wife and I drove two paid for and increasingly expensive cars and thought a new automotive chapter was in order. She got the “fancy pants” Equinox with a ton of options and I got a AWD Trax. My previous car was a 2008 Acura TL. It had low miles (60ish) but, the age was showing it true financial liability. She had a Buick Verano. Anyway, I love the AWD and I did a wheel and tire upgrade. The common consensus is that 215/60 17 is the largest tire you can put on one. That hasn’t been my experience. It rubs rarely. Love it. Thanks in advance. Have a good one!

215/65R17 shouldn't rub unless your rim offset is off. Sure it's taller but still within acceptable limits. Maybe 3%

I’ve just read that a lot. Offset is same as OEM. It does rub occasionally. I would say it depends on the tread at that point. Basically, 215/65 17 is max with an All terrain. Mud would probably be a bit snug. Traditional all season would be fine. My tires are All-terrains.
