I saw these tires in a recent post here on BITOG. Look like a good tire with a great warranty.

However, available sizes don't come in the exact size for my Santa Fe (R235/70 R16).

There are two pretty close--R225/70 R16 and R235/65 R16.

Would either of those be a viable alternative, or would it be best to look for another tire?

Thanks in advance,

Had them on an MKX … very smooth and quiet ~ had little wear at 20k when vehicle traded in …
Fine in the rain ~ about all I worry about down south for a passenger car type of tire …

That is because those tires are designed for regular cars, not SUV's. There may be a truck-specific tire that better suits your needs smile

Here are some good alternatives in your size 235/70-16:
Nokian WRG3 SUV
Vredestein Quatrac 5
Goodyear CS Fuel Max
Michelin Defender LTX
General Grabber HTS60
Nokian Rotiiva AT
Conti CrossContact LX20

Is it really an SUV or CUV?

I think either tire would work fine, assuming the load index is appropriate, although I'd go with the 225/70 since it's closer in OD (only 1.9% smaller compared to 3.2% with the 235/65).

I'd personally go with a different tire that's available in the original size though. I wouldn't worry too much about getting something designed specifically for trucks or SUVs, unless you really do use it for heavy loads or constant towing.

235/70R16 is not really a passenger car tire. However, 225/70R16 is.

These would be good

OK, where are you going to buy? Do you have a relationship with a local tire shop to have them installed? How do you drive? Do you go off-road? Snow? Mud? Tow?

You can usually +1 on the tire size easily enough. So I'D opt for the 65 series, but go one step wider and that will get you back close to nominal diameter smile
