Hi, I’m looking to add some ride height to my base 2019 5-Door. I was thinking of bumping up to a 205/65/16 tire. The Speedo shouldn’t be too bad since it reads a few MPH faster already but I’m more worried about clearance. Has anyone run this size tire for an extended time or have confirmation on issues?

I’ve seen it come up on a few posts but without any confirmation. I don’t care about the slight loss of handling sharpness, that won’t be an issue for me, I just want the added ground clearance.

Thank you.

Ok cool, and no rubbing or anything even under full lock?

Thanks.

No. They clear with no problems at all. They are a little taller than my street tires

, but not enough to make any kind of difference.

I run 215/65r16 falken wildpeak trails. No rubbage. Total diameter is 27.1".
Once dirt builds up in my mud flaps though they will start rubbing while braking/turning at the same time. If you don't have aftermarket flaps you will be fine. Picture from before I lifted it.

Thinking of changing my winters from 205/55/16 to 205/60/16. I know it's not drastic, but I worry about handling when going taller.
