Stockers are 215/55-17 on the XT Sports. Any reason it'd be a *bad* idea to run 215/60-17? Anyone running this size?

Running 215/65R-16 Dunlop SP Winter Sport 3D on my '06 FXT. They seem like magic to me. 215/60-17 would be almost exactly the same diameter as mine, and compared to your stock size:

- would raise the car 0.42 in
- would cause the speedometer to read 3.2% lower

bought em. If anyone is looking for a deal, tirerack has 215/60-17 Michelin XIce Xi2s for 105/ea + 70 MIR, which is 30/wheel cheaper than 215/55-17s Xi2s.
