Using smaller tires on a 2013 Interceptor Sedan

Post by FutureCop » Sat Jun 09, 2018 6:10 pm

I just bought a 2013 FPIS that came with 235/50R18 Michelin Primacy tires. I know that the interceptor was designed for 245/55R18 but I'm wondering if it's okay to use the 50s.

Speedometer and Odometer will not work properly if the setting in BCM not changed. I remember there is a selection for tire size. You can use forscan to change that, not sure if there is a option for 235/50R18 .

How are they in the rain? I looked up the tire rack reviews AND THEY WERE CRAP according to everyone!

Really? I’m shocked to hear that. I think they are good tires. They handle nice for me in dry and wet conditions at both low and high speeds. Low road noise and a smooth ride. Speaking for myself I have no complaints and wouldn’t think to use another tire on my 15 police interceptor sedan.
