Basically, you can put any tire you want under your vehicle providing it fits under the wheel tubs. HOWEVER: remember that each time you increase tire diameter, you are likewise increasing the amount of foot lbs of energy required to get the vehicle underway from a dead start and uphill. You will also be changing the final drive ratio which will cause inaccurate speedometer operation and also affect the speed sensor (if so equipped) output to the ecm. Making a small change such as going from a 225 tire to a 235, is OK as long as you note the speed inaccuracy, to avoid getting speeding tickets, but a jump of three sizes or more could result in driveline and performance problems. Putting in "lift kits" and giant tires looks hot, but unless its done correctly it causes more grief than it's worth, unless you are in need of additional grolund clearance for a specific reason.

Wrong tire size?


P designates a tire for a passenger car, 225 is the width of the tire in mm, 75 is the ratio of sidewall height to the width (eg thesidewalls are 225*0.75=168.75 mm tall), R is the type of tire (radial), and 16 is the diameter of the tire in inches. Customizing the tires gives you different performance results.

If you want your car to act according to how the manufacturer specified, go back to the stock tires. However, your current tires have a larger diameter than the stock, which means your rims are also larger than stock; you would probably have to replace the rims as well, which can be expensive.

I would stick with your new sizes. Different sized tires will not harm your vehicle in any way. I would also recommend going to a store that offers lifetime warranties like Les Schwab; they are invested in insuring that that everything is fitting correctly so they don't have to refund you anything.

I have a Jeep 1994, tires are (P235/75 R15) Want


I did a quick calculation and found that the 245/70R-16s are 29.50 inches in diameter and a little more than 9.6 inches wide. The max for a stock ZJ is 30 inches diameter and about 10 inches wide; so they might rub a little, both on the LCAs during a tight turn and the wheelwell during full compression.

They will give you another inch or so ground clearance than the 245/70R-15s you have now. However, the lug pattern for the 16 in rims might not match; the stock ZJ pattern is 5 on 4.5 inches. You might have to use adaptor spacers to match the lug pattern on the 16in rim, which might be a good thing; the spacers will keep the tires off the LCAs.

Good luck (remember rated this post).

What size tires do I put on Pontiac Grand am?


the stock rims should be 16" making the tire size 205/55/16. let me know if you have a different rim size. you can look at the tire size on the tire sidewall and the last number is going to be your rim size. if it's a 15' rim the tires are 195/65/15 and finally for 14" rims the tire size is 195/70/14. hope this helps.
