Question about 2007 Suzuki XL-7

2 Answers

Looking for a different tire for Suzuki XL7 (2007). Currently has the factory tires Bridgestone 235/60-17 which are a strange size. Need to know if a Cooper CTS 245/65-17 will rub the wheel wells?? Any comments/suggestions?

I do not know for certain whether the larger tires will fit; but here is how you can check.

The 235/60-17 Bridgestone Dueler H/T D684 II have a diameter of 28.3 inches, rim width of 7, section width of 9.3 and a tread width of 7.8. When compared to 245/65-17 Bridgestone Dueler H/T D684 II the diameter(29.5) is 1.2 inches larger and the section width(9.8) is 0.5 inch larger. The rim width and tread width are the same. You would need to check existing clearances and then compare to the additional size required to verify fitment.
The above data is from TireRack (see web address below)
http://www.tirerack.com/tires/Spec.jsp?make=Bridgestone&model=Dueler+H%2FT+D684+II&tirePageLocQty=

Tire Rack carries 5 different tires from 3 brands(Bridgestone, BFG, and Kumho) in the 235/60-17 size at $66 to $119 each. I have bought many tires from them without a problem. They do not carry Cooper tires.

What kind of tires do I use for a 1999 Ford Escort ZX2 2.0 doc motor


Kathy

You can find a list of the recommended tires and pressures on a placard affixed to the driver door / jamb. This placard will also list the weight of the vehicle, and other information too. You should be able to look at the sidewall of the existing tires to determine the size. They will likely be either 185/65-14 or 185/60-15.

I looked at Tirerack.com and input your 1999 Ford Escort ZX2 and got these results. Apparently, two different sizes were standard for this car. They are: 185/65-14 and 185/60-15. The main difference is that one is mounted on a 14 inch rim and the other is mounted on a 15 inch rim (as indicated by the bold number in the size). Determine which size rim (by looking at the tire size you currently have) and replace with one of those listed above. This ONLY applies to factory rims. if they have been changed, all bets are off.

Any reputable tire shop or Automotive tire department (at Sears, etc.) should be able to get this info for you free of charge.

Good luck!

What size tires are on 2001 buick century


20021 Buick Century Sedan - Tire Size

If you have the standard factory 15 inch (diameter) x 6.0 inch (wide) wheels then the tires fitted were size: 205/70R15 (205 is the tyre width in mm and the 15 denotes the tyre bead diameter in inches for fitting to 15 inch wheels. The R denotes the speed rating of the tire).

The tires currently fitted to the car have the size moulded into the sidewall of the tire.

However I do not know if aftermarket wheels have been put on the car and if so a different size tire from the standard factory fitment may have been fitted to the wheels.

I hope this helps.

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.

Tires and rims


Check inside the driver door post for the factory tire size for your truck. It's recommended that your tire size not vary more than 3% of original, due to handling characteristics, and car/truck performance. Keep in mind that putting huge tires on can throw off your speedometer reading, so big tires having fewer revolutions will show a lower speed than you are actually traveling-so watch out for radar traps! Our computer controlled engines are fed info constantly to adjust fuel/air ratio, rpms, etc, and vastly different tire sizes can affect those adjustments and calculations. So, yes, I agree, bigger tires would look much better, but don't go too big. For a formula to estimate tire size and lots of info and advice, go to tirerack website.

New tires Suzuki XL-7 (2007)


245/65R17 is a much more popular size however it is generally(tire sizes are not uniform) about 1 to 1.5 inches bigger in diameter & about a half inch wider. This means you will need about an inch more clearance when the front wheels are max turned, left or right. Also allow for suspension bounce. As far as type of tire: first decide on your priorities (ie..max traction, smooth ride) & then the choice will be easy
