SOURCE: tire size
i have a 2005 and went to a higher profile tire. nothing but good things have come from it. better ride, better gas mileage, and an all around nicer look. do not go to drastic but the next size up as far as sidewall goes...i am happy with my choice.

That's easy, there are some pulleys with ridges to grip the underside of the belt, and some are smooth for the top side of the belt.
I can only assume your belt broke and fell off so you couldn't see how it was on prior. But either way you have limited length, and the last place you would be routing the belt is the tensioner, which you should have located first, so you can have a wrench handy to fit it.
Here's what you have:
Top left= alternator (small ridged)
top right = power steering (large ridged)
Bottom right = AC compressor (large ridged)
Bottom middle = Crank Pulley (large ridged)
In middle next to Power steering = Tensioner (small shiny smooth)
Remove the air cleaner housing (two bolts)
Start on left top side and loop belt (clockwise) across the alternator to the power steering down to AC (also clockwise from right to left) then over to crank pulley (from bottom clockwise around to top of pulley) to tensioner (smooth, belt is backwards on it) which will go back up to the alternator.
At the top middle there should be a sensor protruding from the timing cover that the belt passes under as it connects between the alternator and the power steering. And you won't easily be able to fit anything besides a box-end wrench on the tensioner, so you may need some kind of extension on the wrench to get good torque on it without hurting yourself.

For the do-it-yourself kind of mechanic, there is a kit sold by Prestone that will help you back flush the system using an ordinary garden hose. Available at most any auto-parts store, Walmart & such. It has the basic instructions on the container but I'll give you an overview.
You will need a large container to catch the anti-freeze coming out, You could drain it by removing the plug at the bottom of the radiator first , or remove the lower hose & get most of it out & then just flush the remainder, back-flushing is recommended.
There is a piece that fits into the radiator caps position that helps to aim the water towards a container but sometimes you can't use it due to size restrictions & limitations on space & have to catch the fluid with a drain pan as it overflows.
You will need to install a backflush connector "T". You simply cut into one of the 2 heater hoses, preferably the return line, and install that piece using 2 hose clamps to secure it. The garden hose hooks there.
The engine should be cool, you can crack a head or block by drowning a hot engine with ice cold water.
Just turn the water on slowly, once the anti-freeze stops coming out & it's just water, remove the drain pan & recycle what anti-freeze you can. Remember, most anti-freeze is fatal to birds & animals, including large dogs & children, so clean spills or at least dilute it with water until it is not a threat.
once done, drain the system & refill with the mix you prefer for your area, usually not less than a 50/50.
