Hi
Have a 2.0 diesel, currently has 235 60 16 tyres.
As I need 4 new, have the chance to purchase 215 65 16 at a good price.
The handbook says that both sizes were fitted, does anyone know why some models have either size fitted??
Thanks

Big engine (2;7), big tires. Smaller engine (2.0), small tires. Is basically the long and short of it.

As to the "why", I can't help with that. But I do like to compare tire sizes at Tire Size Comparison
If you enter the two sizes, you'll see that they only differ in diameter by about 0.1 inch. If your machine already had the 235 tire, and assuming you didn't have any problems with tires rubbing on the the wheel wells or suspension (while turning the steering hard left/right), assuming all that, the difference in tire size will be insignificant. My perception is that the wider tire (the 235) looks a little more aggressive.
