Your best choice is to use the DiscountTire.com website and use the optional tools available. You can enter your vehicle and the site can be made to do alternate tire sizes.

There are some choices on the left side of the home screen and you can even find out the true road speed versus speedometer readings if you use an optional tire upgrade.

Now there are several ways to change things. Width and sidewall profile both contribute to Revolutions per mile. My Mercury car came with 60 Series tires, changing to a 65 Series of the same width gave me a 5% boost in fuel mileage with a corresponding speedometer error.

You do have some limits, wheel rim width will not work on extreme tire changes. Different width wheels would be needed. You have to consider clearance issues between the tire and frame of the car on turns. Both the inside edges of the tire must clear the frame.

The total tire height reflects 1/2 the distance change below and 1/2 the change above the wheel rim. So ride height would change and wheel opening clearance would change.

You have many choices of tire size. In sidewalls, they make 55, 60, and 65 Series tires. In width, 225,235,245 and P metric. Use the Discount Tire site, maybe the Tirerack site and work with the numbers.

Go to a Tire shop and have then pull a 50 Series, 55 Series, and 60 Series.tire in the same width. You will be able to see for yourself what the numbers mean.

I would feel comfortable saying an upgrade to a 55 Series would be no problem. You should have a Label on the doorjam to show tire sizes and inflation rates.

Please rate my info.

SOURCE: i need to know the

I do Believe that they are 225/65/15's Do you have the Original Tires now???? If so They have the Size right on the Tire. The Letters and Writing are in Black But, If you take a Piece of Chalk and Highlight the Writing you can read it better. The writting is right on the Side of the Tire.

SOURCE: tire sizes

Open the front drivers door... or the passenger side front door... there should be a sticker there indicating correct tire sizes as well as pressures.

Several car wax companys make kits to clean the outside of the headlight lenses. Check your local parts stores. It's usally pretty hard to remove the len, they are often glued on.

the emission controls, electronic controls are different and would be a violation of federal law to do this, sorry but maybe finding a local engine rebuild shop is your best choice or finding a junk yard engine that is correct one but i never trust junkyard engines, they got junked for a reason, and engines is most likely cause.

2002 mercury cougar vacuum line off the top of transmission


The hose connects to the top of the transmission, underneath the car's battery (you'll have to remove the battery to see the connection site). It's important that this hose, once reconnected, does not does not get crimped. If the hose is not free to "breathe" pressure buildup in the transmission can cause fluid to pour out of the fill point (where the dip-stick goes).

2000 mercury cougar aftermarket steering wheel


There is no aftermarket DIRECT FIT steering wheel.
Each manuafacturer would be required to ake 3000+ different wheels.
Instead they use a HUB adapter.
You pick the wheel you want, and install the adapter that fits the wheel to your car.
MOMO USA is a popular company that makes many hub adapters and wheels.

Thanks for using FixYa - a FixYa rating is appreciated!!
