Try a Ford place because if some tires you put on there are larger it will cause a problem with the ABS or if you have Discount Tire shop or a Bell Tire shop they can also help with this question

Tire size


Yes as long as u change the rims also not just the tires these numbers 195/60/15 195 is tire width 60 is tire height and 15 is rim size, most all Hondas will fit up to 215/35/18 with no rubbing issues on factory suspension ..... Every time the rim size changes u have change the height of the tire so it will fit some go as far as " stretching " the tire to allow larger rims or extreme offsets

Will a mastercraft P205/60R/15 fit my 1995 dodge caravan 6 inch wide stock steel wheel.


yes as long as the rim is a 15 inch rim what matters is the diameter not the width of the rim however you want to match the size of you tires as closely as possible as it will cause abnormal wear on your tires, brakes , and traction control to name a few if you cant match all four at least make sure to match the two in the front and try to keep smaller tires to the front and larger tires to the back

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.

Tires matter on same size rim?


both tires will fit on the 15 inch rim
But be advised make sure you have same size tires on the drive wheels being as your car is front wheel drive u want both the front tires to be the same size
if this is not done u will burn up your transmission
if you have to put a odd ball tire on put it on the rear

exact opposite is true for rear wheel drive car on a rear wheel drive car u want both rear tires to be the same size



Dimension Tire A: 195/65 R 15
(25 x 7.68 x 15) Tire B: 215/60 R 15

What are the largest tires can i fit on my stock 1986 chevy s10 without having to do mods? i have 15 inch rims.


depending on what you are looking to do with your truck. 2 sizes larger then stock listed. Wheel changes? 205 >215 16" plus 2 > 215>225 etc
17" with same results , remember though,,the manifactor intended these sizes for a reason. Too much outside bearing pressure will set off the complete stability of the drive train

Tire and Rim Problem


It appears that you have the wrong size wheels on the rear (17). Standard tire size on that vehicle is 265/75/16. You all so have a full size spare. Keep in mind that if this is a 4 wheel drive vehicle, damage to the drivetrain can result if you continue to drive with diffrent size tires.

What is the largest tire you can put on a ford factory 15 inch truck rim?


most ford pickup rims are 15*7 its kind of a narrow tire therefore the biggest tires are 285/75. those will fit fine too big will rub, crack the sidewall, even cause a blow-out. you can go to your local goodyear and they will lookup your vehicle find the biggest-best tire fore your application, then give you a quote to take with you.

Will the tire size 235/40/R18 fit on my 2000 Oldsmobile Alero?


Take your Alero to any reputable tire dealer and they will assist you in hopes of selling you something. Just tell them you want an estimate and that you want to be sure you won't have a rubbing problem with this change.
