Default Can you put 205/55/R16 tires on a Honda Odyssey Van that has 215/65/R16 tires on it now?

What will be the consequences? Any advantages?

lower load rate

less handling

shorter tire life

lower to ground more chances of dragging

will be the consequences no advantages

can do it but most people go up a size not down

you will have lower gear ratios and therefore worse fuel consumption, faster tire wear and a harder ride = don't bother
