I have a 1991 ford explorer that has 235/75R15 and was going to get some snow tires that are 30x10.50x15. Think they would fit the stock rims? Thank you for your time.

Why would my 91 4wd explorer wobble when it goes down the road?


Well you could have a bent rim, a knot on the tire, the wheel could be loose. Also you might want to check the wheel bearings.

Will 235/70R/15 tires fit on a 91 ford taurus?


Thats a tall tire but it depends on the size tire/rims that are on it. I have a 91 taurus that has 14 inch rims, the only draw back on taller tires are the fender wells, make sure the tires do not rub the fenders. especially the front, if you put them on, turn the front wheels to the left, then check to feel or see that they do not rub. then turn wheels to the right and recheck for clearance. good luck, if the fit and clear.

Hi i just purchased a 2004 kia sudona I have a junk 1999 ford taurus but brand new tires that are 205 60 15 the kia sudona has 215 65 15 will my 205 60 15 fit and be safe to drive with the vehicle


Your Taurus tires are slightly narower ( 1/2 inch ) which is not a problem , but will offer slightly less protection for your rims from curb rash. Your taurus tires are quite a bit shorter , smaller in diameter than your sadona ( about 1 1/2 ) inches. The taurus tires will have to spin faster for the vehicle to travel the same speed. Assuming you are changing all 4 tires there is not really a safety issue , however , your speedometer will not give an acurate indication of your speed.
205/60/15 is a very popular tire size and my personal opinion would be to sell the new tires and ford rims for about $ 300 - $ 400 to someone who has a ford , and use the $$ to buy proper sized tires for your kia. I would go with a good , agressive snow tread on the front , and just a good all season tire on the back.

What tires can fit a 1999 ford expedition xlt


I believe it will fit. If you go to DiscountTires.com you can use their site for alternate tire sizes. Especially handy is the feature which shows you the Speedometer error for different size tires. The site will also show you recommended and popular substitute tire and wheel sizes.

The 1999 model had a 265/65/17 as an alternative. You may want to ask the Tire store you intend to use if they can reconfigure your Speedo to be accurate. Some of the Fords can be done electrically without changing Speedo gears.

I did something similar by going from a "60" series to a "65" series in the same width. On my Grand Marquis, I gained 5% mileage improvement, but have to watch Speedo until I get it reconfigured. I hope this helps to answer your questions.

Can I put a 14 x 6 rim with +30mm offset on this vehicle? I can get them cheap for the snow tires I want to mount. The stock rims do not have this much positive offset. I think it is more like +12. I am...


Yes. the 185/70 are a bit slim for the 6-inch rims - but should bite the rim safely. Wider snow tires would give more traction in snow and ice... and fit the 6-inch rims better.... good luck!! (From sunny North Carolina)

Snow Tires


This is going to effect your ABS and odometer readings. Suggest sticking with the 17 inch tires and can use your original rims.
