SOURCE: I recently purchase a 2005

Speedometers read the rotation of the drive train, usually in the transmission, and so changing tires will not change the transmission ability to read (count) the rotation.
But the transmission rotation will increase or decrease with different sized tires, since they go around faster or slower, depending on the size change.
A smaller tire will go around faster to go the same distance that a larger one goes. So in this case, the transmission will also be going around faster, and the speedometer will be giving a false reading.---------
Bigger tires will make the odometer to read 'long' and the speedometer to read fast. Smaller ones would make them read 'short' and slow.And this all also makes difference in fuel mileage and this makes fuel reading bit different.-------- ---------------- They do not do it automatically, but you can reprogram them with a scantool if you put bigger tires on it.You will get false reading,but to re-adjust the readings correctly,you will need to readjust the transmission settings by scan tool.Which can be done at dealer.As they will have exact specs to do this.But also this can be done at local auto parts and repair center, who has the re-programming scan tool.--------------- This should help.Thanks.Helpmech.

Vibration in front end of Chevy Trailblazer 4x4

Does the shake match tire rotation or drive shaft rotation speed? If it's at tire rotation speed,have the new tires been dynamically balanced on a brand name motorized balancer?Re balance them that way.If a wheel weight has come off you will have a shake.You can also rotate the tires from front to back and see if that helps.Also,brake rotors can be out of balance and even with a perfectly balanced tire,the rotor can throw the balance off.

Tire size on my vehicle 225/75/R16 that needs to be replaced. I have access to 235/70/R16, can I put these on?

225 is the width of tread
75 is the profile(thickness of tyre from the wheel to the road)
R is radial(you knew that)
16 is the wheel size it will fit
so ...1cm wider...5mm thinner...
your speedo will read faster by about 2mph...
fit em anyway...

Will 265/75 r16 tires fit on 2000 chevy silverado

Well I would say yes if it is the new body style and 4x4.Even 2WD you may have to turn up the torsion bars then get the front end aligned.The rims don't matter how tall just wide.I have 2002 4x4 1500 with that size,but not sure what was stock on mine.I also installed the after market torsion keys that will allow for up to 33"tires.Well hope this helps and good luck.

The best place to go and get one is the Salvage Yard, it's will cost you $25,00 if you pull it off the scrap trailblazer. Or you can have them pull one out for you but will cost more, Good luck and hope this helps.

Are load range D Uniroyal Laredo LT225/75R16 load range D tires satisfactory, if hauling a full load of passengers or should D Uniroyal Laredo LT225/75R16 load range E be used. 2500 model

The load range refers to what used to be ply ratings, it is now the grade for holding pressure at load, a "D" range is equal to 8 ply, and the load index for this tire is approx 2300lbs/tire, the "E" rating is equal to 10 ply, and the load index is approx 2700lbs/tire. If you are hauling 12 passengers at 200lbs/passenger plus driver total is 2600lbs. I would say the "E" rated tire is better for that application. If you need more info you can go to google and type in understanding tire markings or ratings, and there are several sites that will cover all tire markings in depth, I hope this helps, let me know
