I want to upgrade to 17 inch wheels but the same size tire so it won't effect my speedo or anything. Does anyone else know what size tire to get and what brands would be good. Used to buying off road jeep tires and know nothing about car tires.

tire sizes that fit your Soul are listed in the back of your owners manual.

Another option is to have your speedo reprogramed at the dealer to whatever size tire you install. When I bought my Exclaim I had them swap the 18 in wheels with a set of 16 in wheels off a new Soul Base. They reprogrammed the speedo and when I checked it on a 5 mile "speedometer check" section on the highway and it was exact.

I put 235 45 18 tires on my base model soul that came from factory with 16s My speedo reads only 1 mph slower. the diameter is 1 inch larger. than the 205 60 16 that it came with if I remember corectly. I havent had my speedo recalibrated because I feel it is not necessary.

The two or three wheel and tyre sizes listed in you hand book are the sizes of Tyres to match the different Rims of each hence the same speed ratio.
