Does this matter or should I raise some cane with them as it has been only a couple weeks now? Also, should I try to get a gas tank shield of some kind for this vehicle? Thanks in advance.
the short answer is no it doesn't matter as long as the tires dont rub the 235 is width in mm at the widest part of the tire when mounted i try to keep it within (give or take) 10 mm of specified. the 60 is side wall height you have about 10 mm of play there without affecting your speedo and the 16 is rim size
as for the shield, i would but i drive on a lot of gravel and snow and salt its really up to you
