You should have the same size tires in the front and back. By having 2 different sizes, you are changing the gear ratios between the front diff. and rear diff. You could wipe out the t-case especially if it is full time 4wd.

What type of tire is recommended for a 2003 Pontiac Grand Am GT?


If the vehicle has the standard factory 16 inch wheels fitted you will need to purchase tires in the size: 225/50R/16. There are many brands and designs/models of tire available in that size. ( The size of tire currently fitted to your car is written on the sidewall of the tire).

There are many cheap and nasty tires on the market so go for a reputable brand and select a premium performance tire. Many cheap tires are poorly built and cannot be properly balanced so you will get a vibration through your steering wheel that any amount of tire re-balancing cannot correct. Often the cheap tires also offer very poor levels of grip and generate a lot of road noise when driving.

Always buy the very best tires you can afford.

Goodyear Eagle GT (all season tire) would be a sound selection and prices are reasonable.

Bridgestone RE 960 AS (all season tire) would also be a good selection.

What size tire do i need for an 01 dodge grand caravan?


You can find this solution at www.tires.com. There are a few options you need to know about the vehicle such as trim level (ES, Sport) and if its front wheel drive or all wheel drive. You can also find this information on the sidewall of your existing tires. It should be be in a format such as 215/65 16 or 215/65R16. The 215 refers to the tire width, the 65 to the ratio of the side wall compared to the tire width and the 16 or R16 is the size of the wheel (rim).
