There is a significant change in overall diameter, sidewall size etc...
Here is a link to a tire size comparison:

Tire Size Comparison
Specification  Sidewall  Radius  Diameter  Circumference  Revs/Mile  Difference
235/55-17         5.1in  13.6in    27.2in         85.4in        742        0.0%
235/65-17         6.0in  14.5in    29.0in         91.2in        695        6.8%

Just curious??? Why did you pick that 235/65/17 size.  

The OEM options were 235/55/17 and 225/60/17

I have AT tires on mine, is factory size. I am not sure they are made any more, but they have been a good tire so far. Sumitomo was the brand, not sure of the model.
