Largest tyre size for b9
I need new winter tyres for the coming winter.  Was looking at fitting 205/65/16 will give me extra 15cm on the diameter.  Is anyone running this size or larger?  I want to go larger if possible as I figured this will be a good way to give me slightly higher ride height to get through the drifts etc.
I upsides from 175/70/14 to 184/65/14 when I bought my Winter tyres.

Can recommended the Nexen Winguard Snow G WH2 tyres.
Silver Berlingo Multispace 1.4i Forte

I'm running 195 x 65 x 15 winter tyres. On my Partner, no problems, arches look full.
Not wishing to be the voice of doom, but you probably know that you will be travelling faster than the speedo reads if you do this. The speedo just counts turns of the wheels, and if it's a bigger diameter it will be going further per turn.

Plus your insurance will be voided if you ever claim and they notice. It could even be illegal if the police were to decide it was unroadworthy - e.g. if you were in an accident that involved you skidding or braking.
