wrong tyres?

Hello everyone,
I have just bought a 2011 Viano (UK) 2.2 diesel (163bhp) and want to change the tyres. According to the VIN decoder it came with 225/60/16s but is currently on 235/60/16s, including the spare, and I wondered what people thought about keeping 235s or going back to 225s? Should I be putting XL tyres on or just match the load index?

if the current tyres are in good condition.... keep them and save your money.

the only disadvantage of the size increase is that the speedo will be very slightly out... eg you are doing 41mph and the gauge shows 40mph

the difference is too small to create a problem... but be aware of it
