Default CRV-tire size question

I have seen some posts where people have replaced their OEM 205/70/15
size tires with 225/70/15.

What are the real advantages of doing this?

Actually, 215/65/15 would be the optimum size as the tire diameter is very
close to the OEM size. Advantage is putting a wider footprint on the road
and making the tire fill up the wheel well a little more and give the
vehicle a more aggressive stance.
Different reasons for different folks is the best way I can put it.

Depends on what you consider important. 205 will be marginally better for
economy. 225 will be marginally better for contact patch (i.e. - traction).
Of course you could deflate 205's a little and get similar results.

Unless you're in snow, where the narrower the tire, the better the traction.

The bigger tire will sling more crap on the sides of the car( mud bla bla
bla ) especially when you corner, they may even rub when going over bumps.
