Ellipse/Tour tire size change

I searched and found some comments where some folks were considering changing the drive tire size from 275s to 295s to match the steers but have not found anyone that said they actually made the change.
So has anybody changed sizes on their Ellipse/Tour and if so how did it turn out?

I bought my 2014 tour last year from camping world. They replaced all 8 tires with 295 Toyo. I have no experience with 275 but am completely satisfied with the 295.Click image for larger version

You will need to have your speedometer recalibrated

Kinda funny you mentioned speedometer since ours is a couple of mphs slow and the new tire size will pickup the speed up a bit. Should work out in the wash.

Replaced OEM Michelin 275/80 with Toyo 295/75 M154 at all 3 axles.
OEM size 507 revs/mile vs 505 for the 295/75. Not enough speedo difference to worry about. https://tiresize.com/comparison/
I actually find speedo matches closer to GPS speed now anyway.
