What size tyres camaro 1997 3800rs v6


The wheels could have been changed on the car from the standard original factory set and hence the tyre size may not be the standard factory original size.
The size of the tyres on the vehicle now is moulded into the side wall of the tyres and is easy to read.
Check all 4 tyres because larger size tyres may have been fitted as a pair to the rear.

The size might read - for example 245 45 18 or 235 45 17 (there are a huge number of sizes for each model of tyre).

The first 3 numbers are the width of the tyres in mm eg 225 mmm or 235 mm and so on. The second 2 numbers are the tyre profile size or ratio (which can be 70 65 60 55 50 45 40 and so on. The third number is the wheel diameter size. If you have 18 inch wheels on the car the tyres will read 18 or if they are 17 inch wheels the tyres will read 17 and so on.

Can i go from 14 inch to 15inch tires and rims


If you post your present tyre size (on the tyre wall), then we can offer you a suitable larger replacement diameter size.
The simple answer to your question is yes, you can increase the size of your rims, and lower the profile of your tyre to compensate.

The other thing I'd mention as most people who don't know much about tyres don't consider this, is that when you reduce the height (wall) of a tyre by increasing the rim size, then you change two primary characteristics of the tyre's performance.


1: Tyre wall stiffness. Simply put, the shorter the tyre wall, the stiffer the tyre is when cornering. This can be a positive thing and can reduce the amount of body roll, whilst increasing the tyre's contact with the road.
2: Suspension. The tyre wall offers suspension to the vehicle. Yes, it's not just your springs and shocks which absorb the bumps from the road. By reducing the tyre wall height, you will effectively reduce the suspension capability of the tyre and it will become less forgiving on road surfaces.
It's because of these two reasons above that manufacturers try different combinations to deliver the best overall satisfaction rating to the type of customer who is going to drive that type of vehicle.
It is therefore typical that to many people, changing the rim and tyre size will not always have a positive effect.
In fact most customers who request rim size upgrades, according to my own experience are only interested in the appearance of the wheel, but are often disappointed with the results in performance.
This is why I always find it prudent to mention these points to anyone considering a rim size increase.

Rim size increases, because resulting in less tyre suspension actually increases shocks to the chassis components, and will also tend to reduce the life of these components.


So just be aware of what you face, when making this decision.

What is the tyre size of Toyota Starlet car and what is the tyre?


The tire and that is on it, we'll have the size listed on the side wall. It usually looks like 185/60 R14 or 195/75 R13 or some variation on the numbers but basically in that format. The question is, what size did it come with, what size does it have now, what size do you want to be on there. A seasoned tire store veteran can tell you all of the different variations on size that will fit your car. By a you can select a tire size and type based on ride comfort, winter or wet traction, high speed performance etc. If the tire pressure will also be listed on the sidewall usually in pretty darn tiny letters. Generally 35 PSI that is the Max. 32 usually gives a comfortable ride. air compressors that you can plug in your series cigarette lighter are less than 20 bucks and have a gauge. Please rate this answer.

What size alloys. Ford Calypso 1997


Yes. The last number on a tire size is the diameter of the rim, when it changes so too must the tire. The bigger the tire the more they cost.
You also have to pay attention to the width of the rim, side to side. Somes tires need a wider rim than others, so ask when you are buying the rims what width they need tires to be because wider tires cost more too. Hope this helps.

I just bought a 95 ford ranger. I need new tires


Type ford ranger tyre size into your search engine you will find the origional size there. Otherwise if you are changing all four fit four the same size. Low profile gives you more power high profile gives more speed. If you do a lot of towing low are better.
