I need to replace my tires and want to go beefy. I have been searching for a while. I know the 225 50 16 works well. I want to go larger either 225 55 16 or 225 60 16 .Im looking for others who are running these sizes and looking for pics. My xb is an 08 on stock springs. Thanks

Yes this does help!:) Thanks! So if your lowered and have no clearance issues I should definitely not have a problem since Im staying at stock height.

I'm running 225/50 x 16 Yokohama S Drive summer tires on 7" wide Drag 34 rims with 40mm offset, I'm on NF210 springs. No clearance issues.

Sounds like you know this already, but for those who don't: according to Custom rims, wheel tire packages for your ride - RIMSnTIRES.com the 225/55x16 will introduce a 3.5% speedometer/odometer error and the 225/60x16 will introduce a 7% error.

The 225/50x16 size has the exact same rolling diameter as stock.
You are right brick! It does affect you. When I am going 70 according to my speedo, I'm actually rolling at about 74. Keep that in mind. It won't always be a 4 mile increase as it's a percentage. But if you can live with that then they will fit without a problem whatsoever and give you a little bit more ground clearance too. Even with lowering springs I am at about the same height as stock xb's only level. If you like this look and comfort then definitely go for it. Just make mental notes of your speedo.

I just installed 225 60 16 on my 09. Sits great! No rubbing at all. All stock set-up(including 16” steelies). Rides great now too! My speedo is 3mph off at 70mph. If I set my cruise at 67mph, I’m actually doing 70mph
