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.

My 2004 GMC Yukon came with 265 70/16. I put on 245 75/16. Was this ok to do, or am I gonna have problems?


you could have problems as the tire may not be wide enough for the rim resulting in tire failure during cornering
the side wall may be sitting too straight up even out at the rim
best talk with a tire shop as they know the best size tire for the rim or the specified tires for the vehicle will be on the decal on the door or door pillar
the 265 dimension is the rim width ( problem area)
the 75 dimension is the distance of the rim edge from the road ( not a real problem but can affect speedo accuracy)

Can I switch from a 1957514 tire to a 1957014?


Yes you can but expect an error in speedo reading as you are decreasing the circumference of the tyre meaning it turns faster to cover the same distance.. The 195 is the rim width The 75 is the profile height of the side wall and the 14 is the rim diameter in inches So smaller profile size ==lower car= wrong speedo reading. You can use this information to change the rims IE go to 15 inch rims so the tyre reading would look like this 195 35 15 would be about the same as 195 95 14. By lowering the profile size you can go up in rim dia size and still retain the same speedo readings and car height.. Talk to a tyre shop to get the idea.

Can you put 16" tires


Yes you can. Many of the later 90's trucks came factory with 16" wheels and share the same bolt pattern. Be careful you don't purchase 6 lug wheels which the 4wd trucks use.

I have a bent rim on my 1994 geo prizm and I was wanting to know if it has a 13" rim or a 14' rim


go look at the tires that are on your vehicle.. there will be a number that looks like this.
205/55/14 or 215/45/13
its 3 numbers.. and the last number is your rim size.. so 205/55/13 would be a 13 inch rim

Can i use size 15 on the rim for my 1994 honda civic.


You can't put a 15 on a rim that is for a 14 inch tire................For example if you have 205-75R14 just for example you can't put a 15 inch tire on it unless they are for example 205-75R15...........................Hope this helps you out............Rims with same bolt patteron will work...................If Hot Rod in engineering can work.

Got hit on the right rear tire and now it is dented in


find some junkyards in the phone book and call them until you find a replacement rim. they are about 20 bucks used and most likely about any GM rim from the 90s will fit it. have your old tire put on your new used rim, balanced, and you are good to go unless the tire itself has been damaged.take a look at the tire size so you know what size rim you have, most likely a 13,14, or 15 inch size.

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.

My OEM wheels are too small want to give my 95 Camry a Lift


my car has 15" rims, it works nicely, hmmm I'd say 16" rims are probly about as high as you could go without needing lower profile tires and keeping the car's performance...
