How wide are your rims, if they are 17x8 or 17x8.5 it should be fine. one thing that will change for sure is your speedometer will be off since you changed the width of the tire without changing the size of the rim

If you have 8" or wider rims then you should have no problems at all. <br>About the speedometer, you had approx. 25.07" of wheel/tire diameter. With the new tires you'll have approx. 25.33" of wheel/tire diameter. That should make the speedometer read a couple mph less than you're actually going. The difference should not be too big, though.
