The tire salesmant said I could substitute these sizes for the stock
215/65/16 ties ( on factory steel wheels - 2001 Honda  Odyssey LX  )
but I want to make sure that I don't risk any potentential of rubbing
on sharp turns or drivetrain weak from the differn sized tires .
Discussion on this is appriated - thanks

I use 225/60/16. They are wider, making braking better. They feel sharper
during cornering. They're a bit smaller overall, making acceleration
better. However, they exacerbate speedometer/odometer to an error of 5%.
The error is not a problem with me, just letting you know in advance of
what you're getting into. They have no problem with fitting. If they need
replacement, I would stick with this size again.

I won't use 235 because they're too wide for the stock rims.
