yea, see, i put 215s on rims that normally fit 235s or 225s at the smallest.
most tire mounting places do not do that.

i also got an increase of mpg of roughly 2mpg.
there was not a need to "fix" the odo, because believe it or not, my 235s were SOOO low on tread that new 215s were bigger than the 235s.
