Tire size question

I recently installed a readylift kit on my 2009 pilot and now i have room for 31 inch tires. My current tire size is 245/65r17.
I plan on using my stock rim. What are the measurements i am looking for on a replacement tire that will be 31 inches tall and fit on my current rim?

265x70x17 is the tire size. But be aware your speedometer will be off.

Stock wheel diameter is 29. Your speedometer is calibrated to that size.
They speedometer would read 5 mph slower.

If you increase tire diameter, speedometer will read slower than it should. Bigger circumference, fewer rotations for same distance. "Honest officer, I had no idea..."

If you go with a 265/70R-17 tire size you will be at 31.6 inches tall. Keep in mind tires vary somewhat from one tire brand to another.

Here is a link to our tire size calculator so you can see the difference in size.
