92 Audi Avant 17" tire size

Hello, I'm planning to upgrade my 15" stock rims to a 17" on my 92 Audi 100 Avant Quattro but I'll like to know what tire size will be appropriate for them to avoid increasing fuel consumption and rubbing clearing; I'm currently using 195/65/15.
On my 89 200 TQ I'm running 205/60/15 and still undecided to keep stock on the Avant and upgrade the 200 or vice versa.

As a rule of thumb every inch bigger you go, you want to go 10% lower on the aspect ratio. so the 195/65/15 will be 195/45/17 and the 205/60/15 will be 205/40/17. the 205/40/17 are a lot more common there for a wider selection and lower price. Good Luck

What is the difference between tire size 255/70 and 265/70


Hello Projocs03,

Tires are typically measured tire width (sidewall)/tire ride height/wheel size. The differences of the two tire sizes you published are .4 of an inch difference in width/sidewall. And about .55 in over all diameter which would impact you revs per rotation. Depending on your wheel size.

Attached is a comparison of the two given the variable of 17" rim.

I added the above link so you can research further or change any variables you need to know. However, the most important thing to understand is the impact of your speedometer. Different sizes will have different impacts. For example going to a bigger tire will show a slower speed on your spedo that your traveling.

Good luck

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.

How to change the nissan sentra b13 stock wheels and change to tires 205/45/17 inch rims? because i have seen b13 nissan using 17inch rims, how they do it?


you may be able to use a 17 in rim but will need a smaller tire(sidewall)
formula: 185/65/15(maybe stock size)-195/55/16-205/45/17
if your rim size goes up-the first number(circumfrence)goes up 10/second number(sidewall size)goes down 10
you may look at a 205(or 215)/35(or 40)/17
i had a 205/45/16 on my b13 and still had room
either that or you shve the fender wells to make room

I would advise you to leave both sides with 235 45 17 this tire size would provide you with better handling and improved comfort also tires wil be more protected of suffering damage in the sidewalls caused by bumps and potholes just remember to keep them inflated at 38 +/- 2 psi.

Upgrade to Rim 15''


If you can tell me the size of your current tires, I can give you a correct 15" tire size to keep as close as possible to your stock calibrations for speedometer, odometer, and suspension clearance.
