Replacing 185/60/14 tires with 185/70/14 on Chevy Aveo


I need to replace the tires on my 05 Chevy Aveo. My father is offering me 185/70/14 tires that are “almost new”. The manual calls for 185/60/14.

Any potential downside to the slightly larger tires?


It will throw your speedometer off by about 6% and raise your ride height by about 3/4".


Also a serious downgrade in handling and I imagine there is not much to begin with in an Aveo.
