I am interested in changing my tires to all-terrain and am interested in a couple of tires that fit the stock 17" steel wheels:

Conti 225/60R17-same size as stock and should have no effect on gearing of the vehicle.

Cooper 235/60R-17: slightly oversize at 28.1" diameter and may affect gearing due to that larger diameter.

Are there other members that have run these tires and, if so, what has been your experience with gas mileage, rpm at speed, etc. I am mostly concerned with those that have gone slightly oversize and how has it affected drivability of your vehicle.
