Tires for 2001 Hyundai Accent R14

I have a 2001 Hyundai Accent. The previous owner has changed the rims from the original 13 inches to Racing 14 inches. The manufacturer specified size for Rim size 14 is 185/60 however when I purchased the car, they had 175/70 size which is the manufacturer specified size for the Rim 13s.

I'd like to change to the manufacturers specification however would like to understand the pluses and minuses of doing so.



I've been using tire size 175/70/R14 on my 2001 Hyundai Accent. I've recently realized that this is the specified size for a Rim diameter 13 and the correct size for the Rim 14 is 185/60. The 175/70 is significantly cheaper than the 185/60, what are the advantages / disadvantages of changing to the manufacturers specification.

My 2002 Accent has the original rims which are R14 rather than the R13 specified in the owner's manual. Yet my speedometer is factory calibrated and gives the correct speed readings at all speeds (compared to my GPS navigator's indicated speed). I suspect that R14 is correct for your car and that Hyundai forgot to update the owner's manual.

Well the one your using is slimmer and taller there is no disadvantages actually the advantages is you can turn wider from left to right and it is more soft driven because it is taller.

I was given a set of 215 70 R14 brand new tires and need to know if they will fit on a 1999 Dodge Caravan, the tires originally on it say 205 75 R14


Hi , tires recommended on that vehicle are 195/75R14 and 205/75R14. The tires you have are taller and wider than recommended. The taller may or may not rub fender wells going around corners, etc. The wider would be ok, but may not mount to your rims. Call a good tire shop and ask a mechanic there if it is feasable to use those tires on your existing rims. Mike

Two different wheel sizes r14 on the front and r15 on the back. Its a hyundi getz is this correct to have the two sizes on it.


No, it puts a hamper on rotating tires. You have 2 different sized rims and that is unusual. In most cases when you see this it is because someone is running larger wider tires on the back to achieve some custom look. I would replace 2 of them to make them all the same size. Typically in the door frame or gas cap cover in some vehicles, there is a sticker that recommends the proper tire size. In the end it won't matter if you go with 14 or 15 since that is only indicating the rim Diameter and not the actual tire diameter which would effect the accuracy of your speedometer. The Sticker or owners manual will indicate what the vehicle should have.

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

I have a 1979 fiat spider, I am putting 14" rims


Make sure the rims are the correct bot pattern (4 X 98) and hubcentric. As for tire size, goin from a 13 to 14 inch rim is called plus one. The key is tio maintian the same tire diameter so the gear ratio and speedometer arenlt affected.

A stock 13 take a 195SR- 13 tire, wirth the 'SR' being a 75 series tire with a diameter of 24.52 inches. The closest match in 14 inch tires is 215x60-14 with a diamter of 24.16. As close as possible match.

That would as much tire as youi wouls ever need.

What are the original sized tires for a mazda protege 1992


175/70/R13 For the DX Model
185/60/R14 for the 4wd model and LX

You can also look directly on your tires sidewall, or side of tire and locate the sizing.
If you see the 14, it has a 14" tire, meaning, it fits a 14" rim.
If you see a 13", it has a 13" tire and fits a 13" rim.

Hope this helps, rate for it to help others.

Im trying to replace rims for my 2002 hyundai accent...Ive seen 2 sizes on line, 13 x 4.5" and 13 x 5". If I change all 4 will there be an issue with my new 175/70r13 tires?


I work at a tire shop. The tires will fit fine on those sizes of rims. I would use the 13 x 5", because its the widest and that way the tires don't have that pizza cutter look.
