I found some snow tires in a swap site, but the size is 215/55/R16 is this enough of a difference to cause trouble w the ABS, or other things? I checked a tire size calculator and the speedo will read 1.764% to slow and the diameter difference was 1.74% So what does this mean in laymans terms? I sent an inquiry about the tires, but I want to check out the safety issues before commiting to the deal.
Thanks for your help.

that size will be fine - that is pretty minimal change - i am going to get a slightly larger tire also and checked w/ service department and was told it would work fine...
