I Have a Toyota Sienna LE 2006 with tires 215/65/R16, can I replace them with tires 225/65/r16?

A cheaper route and one that would keep your speedometer more accurate would be 215/70R/16. Slightly taller, less footprint, but more accurate and true to your actual speed.

I have a 2006 scion tc 5 spd doesnt read my speed i change my wheel sensors all 4 tire and stil doesnt read my speed i also change my cluster and still doesnt work any idea what could be also giving m

the dash speed readout is allways feed via the transmission speed sensor , it's usually close to the final drive output from transmission , this not working would also effect car if it had a automatic trans in it as it would not know what speed to shift at, a little less obvious in a 5 speed , wheel sensors usually only feedback to ABS brake system as they tell abs what tires are turning

Can i go bigger than 215-70-15 215 dont seem tall enough ? if i go to 16 inch will it effect the speedometer?

Hello, I can tell you about my 2002 Gran Marquis LSE wheels and tires. On my car which had the 16" Wheels, Mercury wanted a low rider style for all chassis, including Police cars. They used "60" Series tires and when parking mine, the front concrete curb stops would consistently allow the front bumper cover or the air dam underneath the car to hit. ( Partially from the settling of the Air Suspension.) Even snow covered roads would scrap the car bottom. I bumped my tires up to a 65 Series which seemed a good compromise and it helped. A 75 Series may do you good on 15" rims.

I started looking for taller tires to raise the body. I found a good Website in, which when you plug in different tires OR rim sizes will give you the Speedo error for a few preset speeds. The site also lists Alternative tire sizes normally used for YOUR car and Level 1, Level 2, wheel upgrades which is tire jargon known to some.

You can get some Speedos Electronically recalculated for the different tires or wheel sizes. Just make sure the new wheels need the same thickness of studs as are on your car. You need to watch the clearance at the front tires' back wheel lip and the inside of the tire by the frame.

You can ask a tire store to pull 1 tire in your size and roll out a few other sizes and stand them side by side to see the difference in height. I hope you have found my solution very helpful in making your choice.

Shaking in the stering at 60mph

Tire balance is likely cause, It starts shaking at a certain speed then will stop at a higher speed, If it were a bad belt it would have a constant wobble feel

Can I put 215/70/R15 winter tires from 2002 Montana on my 2003 Silhouette?

yes you can, basically you can just about put any size tire on as long as it fit however 215 is the height of the tires, by putting smaller or taller tires than recommended by the manufacture will effect you speed odometer. 70 is the width of the tires, the wider the better traction and 15 is the size of the tires that will fit the rims. Here is example...

Specification Sidewall Radius Diameter Circumference Revs/Mile Difference 215/75-15 6.3in 13.8in 27.7in 87.0in 728 0.0% 225/75-15 6.6in 14.1in 28.3in 88.9in 713 2.1%

Tire width should not affect your brake components at all, but with the added weight of the tires it will may take a little longer to stop due to the rolling mass, but it probably will not be noticeable.

Transmission shafts growl and the steering wheel vibrate

Either a loose nut or a broken/crack washer /rubber in the front transmition. AThis a headache to any dealer because the fron transmition will be dismantle to check on every piece. The reason it starts a60 is because the force/torque upon the washer and disapears at 100 because the force/torque upon the piece is so big the lock again
