Honda Civic winter tires on a Honda CRV?

Hello everyone! I need your advice.
My Honda CRV's tire size is: 235/65R17
I have Honda Civic winter tires, size is: 215/50R17

Can I put my Civic winter tires on the CRV? Or would it lower my CRV too much?

Technically it fits, but like iGarage said, not recommended. I wouldn't do this if you can avoid it.

https://www.wheel-size.com/calc/?wheel1 ... 0mm&sr=0mm

if you do this, you/your:
- scrub radius +14mm
- speedo will be off. Example given by website is when speedometer reads 60 km/h actual speed will be 52.6 km/h.
- have less grip by the tires.
- harsher ride due to less sidewall (this also means your CRV will be lower to the ground)
- car will look funny due to having very small wheels not filling the wheel wells.

Way too small for CRV. Listen to Ivan (igarage), he is never wrong.

Those Civic tires are way too small to mount on a CRV. Difference in diameter is over 12% meaning if your speedometer reads 90km/h your actually going 79km/h lol rule of thumb is 2-3% difference in diameter is max. Not to mention those small tires on a CRV is going to look stupid vice versa just imagine how CRV tires would look on a Civic.
