Default Tires

I just want to know if I can put 235/70 R16 M/S on my 08 touring. It has 205/55 R16's on it now. I can get the others for the price of mounting. Will they fit. Thanks in advance

Those tires will likely be quite a bit too big. The circumference of a 235/70 R16 is about 29 inches. I believe the maximum front wheel height for a PT is around 25.5 inches.

The car with the bigger tires doesn't run so I have to Jick and Jack to get them. I don't want to switch twice,

Thank you very much for the replies ...... they look nice on the Montero, I thought they might be a little wide, I was searching for a link but put to many words in the search. It's hard to pass almost new tires if they would work.
I can't get the Key dance to work either. I got the "hold the trip reset" in when you turn the key on and get a read out but I can't get the main codes to read. I just bought an 08 with a lot of miles but needed something to get around in the snow. I'm trying to clear the traction light or see why it's on....still reading.....still trying to figure it out....thank again

Teska,

Is that a screen shot from an online tire calculator? If so, what is the URL or could you provide a link? That's a really nice one.

PS: I found it. It's at http://www.rimsntires.com/specs.jsp
