has 17" factory wheels...

Will the 16" factory steel wheels with the original tires with full wheel covers with lugnuts currently sitting in my basement from the street appearance package from a 04 P71 fit on a 2011 LX that came with 17" wheels?

Thanks and Happy New Year to all

You need to give the computer the correct tire size, some tire shops may be able to do this.
When comparing stock 235/55-17 to 225/60-16, the difference is 2%(at 60 on the speedo, you will be going 58.8)

You can run 235/60-16's and be very close, just .1" less on tire diameter. But, then you have to buy tires.
