Tire size/VS/Mecanic

Help wanted.

I have a 1998 splash with only a 3.0L 2x4 it is set for 235/60R15.

I'm tired to have empty fenders so this week I will install 4 235/75R15 Same size as the 4x4 splash but I've asked Ford service center and 2 other garage if it would be hard on the mecanic. I know that it will have an effect on the "real" millage and speed because it is set for "60" and not for "75" the only answers i've got so far is ...It's not recommended...but no body seams to be able to answer.

Will it be hard on the "Autom. Transmission" ???

Will it be hard on the differential ???


Help would be very appreciated. Thanks.

your original set is 26.1x9.25x15

now the 235x75x15 is 28.88x9.25x15 its just a little taller it wont hurt anything.. who ever is telling you this is a complete moron... and i have no clue what a "mecanic" is, i assume you are spelling something wrong...

Thanks for the reply Redneckstone.

mechanic....Sorry "H" was missing.

Probebly he did not want to be held responsable for even slightly over sizing tires from original but he did not compare with other Ranger tire sizes....He also said you could have 205/70R15 ......Yeah right!!!!
