Question about 2004 GMC Envoy

Correct Tire Size?

I have a 04 Envoy and its time for new tires. My current tires are stock P245/65-17. I have been offered some free tires from a friend but they are 225/55-17. Any thoughts on what would happen if I put these smaller tires on?

Your speedometer would be incorrect and your ABS brake function would change slightly, it would activate at a lower speed. Fuel economy would suffer slightly at highway speeds.
However, you can take it in to your dealer and they can reconfigure the vehicle to accommodate the smaller tires so your speedo and ABS function properly. They merely have to change the configuration files.
Good luck, hope this helps.

Wrong tire size?


P designates a tire for a passenger car, 225 is the width of the tire in mm, 75 is the ratio of sidewall height to the width (eg thesidewalls are 225*0.75=168.75 mm tall), R is the type of tire (radial), and 16 is the diameter of the tire in inches. Customizing the tires gives you different performance results.

If you want your car to act according to how the manufacturer specified, go back to the stock tires. However, your current tires have a larger diameter than the stock, which means your rims are also larger than stock; you would probably have to replace the rims as well, which can be expensive.

I would stick with your new sizes. Different sized tires will not harm your vehicle in any way. I would also recommend going to a store that offers lifetime warranties like Les Schwab; they are invested in insuring that that everything is fitting correctly so they don't have to refund you anything.

My car is eating away at my tires


Keisha,

How many miles on these tires? Are they wearing on the outside edge, inside edge, or evenly across the tread? do you have them rotated regularly? Generally the number one cause of premature tire wear is improper inflation. Always use the tire pressure information on the sticker on the inside of your driver side door, not the "Max PSI" listed on the tire. The second cause is the wheels being out of alignment. Most tire shops will check the alignment for free. I usually suggest Firestone because they (to my knowledge) are one of the only shops left that do lifetime warranty alignments. Good luck and hope this helps.

He's probably talking about the wheel bearings located in the front hubs. They can wear out over time and cause a humming sound as well as vibration. Any brake shop will look at the truck for a free brake inspection. If they determine it's just a wheel bearing, it shouldn't be a big ticket job.

What size can I go up from stock tire size for 04 envoy with minimal issues?


The major problem with increasing tire size on the Envoy is at the front wheel assembly. The upper ball joint is very close to the tire, even with standard size tires. Go to www.trailvoy.com and do a search on tire size, I believe someone posted a chart of tire sizes for fit with different years of Envoy and Trailblazer.

2004 dodge ram 4x4 front end shaking problems when we hit a bump...replaced the front wheel bearings,upper/lower ball joints,steering damper!!! any ideas


Could possibly need the steering box adjusted. It might be a little loose. And tire balance usually makes it shimmy. Could have a broken belt in one of the tires. Jack up the wheel and spin the tire and check the run out. (look for a wiggle when spinning the tire).

buy upgrade brakes, the stock tires will do the job, a simple upgrade that helps is vented/drilled disk brake rotors, from there u cqan install big brake kits but they are very pricey, into the $1000's
