theyre not going to be too wide, most bonnevilles here can support up to a 245 tire, 235 will work no problem....

it'll throw off your speedo a bit.

When your speedo says 60, you're actually travelling 61.1

They are not too wide. They are not going to rub. I run 245'* on the Zilla, and I'm running that exact same 235/60/16 on the SLE right now.

I'd base my choice on whether to run them more on what brand and model they are, not on the size.

They won't affect your speedometer either, any changes will be so minor you wont even notice.

YOU can. The 92-99 will need minor modification to run 255. I almost went that route, but it wasn't worth another 35% in tire cost for me to go from 245 to 255.
