Currently awaiting an incoming limited phev in the next 2-3 weeks. The dealer mentioned changing wheels and tires on the phev version from stock was a bad idea. Asides from possibly throwing off mpg, any reason why one shouldn't do that. I was thinking of throwing on some 17 inch methods with tires that have a taller side wall.

As long as the outside tire diameter and width is the same it shouldn’t be a problem.

Thanks for the reply, dealer made it sound like an issue but that really doesn't make sense because people in cold climates switch tires every year between winter and summer wheel and tire combos.

Most definitely you can run a 17” fitment if you want. If your OEM tires are 235/55R19, you can go to 235/65R17. I’d double check the revs per mile spec on the actual tire you decide on.
