the squeaking sounds like a wheel bearing going bad. And the pulling to one side is cause by unequal braking pressure caused by plugged rubber brake hose, bad calipers or wheel cylinders. Check the bearings by lifting the car with a jack, block the wheels, and use a jack stand for safety. now wiggle the tire around. If it has any play, the bearing is bad. Replace it. I would replace your brakes as well. Good luck
You will likely notice a little better ride over bumps. I've found 1 rim size and 1 tire size doesn't seem to create much trouble. For example, my VW calls for 185/14's but it is running 195/15's. I don't notice any problems with steering hitting or suspension bottoming out.
as long as the rims dont rub against the wing or suspension it should be fine 195 is the width of tyre 65r is from rim to tred 14 is the size of the rim the bigger the rim the thinner the tyre has to be hope this helps and makes sence ivan
Tie rod ends, ball joint, or Upper strut bearing. An alignment shop would give you an estimate for the repair. You can borrow tools to install the bigger stuff at most Autoparts stores. But for all of these repairs you should get an alignment after replacing any one of these parts.
Hello, I can tell you about my 2002 Gran Marquis LSE wheels and tires. On my car which had the 16" Wheels, Mercury wanted a low rider style for all chassis, including Police cars. They used "60" Series tires and when parking mine, the front concrete curb stops would consistently allow the front bumper cover or the air dam underneath the car to hit. ( Partially from the settling of the Air Suspension.) Even snow covered roads would scrap the car bottom. I bumped my tires up to a 65 Series which seemed a good compromise and it helped. A 75 Series may do you good on 15" rims.
I started looking for taller tires to raise the body. I found a good Website in DiscountTires.com, which when you plug in different tires OR rim sizes will give you the Speedo error for a few preset speeds. The site also lists Alternative tire sizes normally used for YOUR car and Level 1, Level 2, wheel upgrades which is tire jargon known to some.
You can get some Speedos Electronically recalculated for the different tires or wheel sizes. Just make sure the new wheels need the same thickness of studs as are on your car. You need to watch the clearance at the front tires' back wheel lip and the inside of the tire by the frame.
You can ask a tire store to pull 1 tire in your size and roll out a few other sizes and stand them side by side to see the difference in height. I hope you have found my solution very helpful in making your choice.
FACTORY SPARE TIRE IN TRUNK HAS LARGER RIM. THE RIM IS 2 INCH BIGGER IN DIAMETER TIRE HEIGHT AND RIM WILL GIVE CAR CORRECT WHEEL HEIGHT.IF YOU DONT HAVE FACTORY SPARE TIRE.YOU CAN BUY SAME SIZE RIM THAT YOU HAVE ON YOUR VAN AT SALVAGE YARD PUT USE TIRE ON RIM OR GO TO DEALERSHIP THEY CAN GET YOU A FACTORY SPARE TIRE.
205 is the width in mm. 65 is the hight of the sidewall (.65x205=133.25mm)65 percent of the with. 15 is the diamater in inches of the rim (tire hole) for example if you keep the same rims 205 75 15 would be the same width but slightly taller. 215 65 15 is wider and taller as 65% of 215 is 139.75 millimeters. if you go to 16 or 17 inch rims u can get much bigger. the width of the tire must not rub on the insides of the fenders. the hight must not contact the top of fender taking in consideration the suspension. u can look for car clubs of that model and chat with the members.
The one thing you never mentioned was if you had your Jeep SUV Front-end Aligned after you had the new tires installed?
I'm guessing/hoping you did???
Where did you have the work done at? Be specific here!
Was it a 2-wheel or 4-wheel alignment if that applies here? Big
difference it was done RIGHT or if it was done WRONG? That's just maybe
part of the problem though if it was indeed MIS-ALIGNED. When you say
PULLING - that is a BIG CLUE right there of a possible MIS-ALIGNMENT!!
Not sure what size tires you had on it originally or which size new
tires you had put on, but if the new tires were over-sized then you are
rubbing on the mainframe or possibly rubbing the front fender wells??
This has happened before, as sometimes they don't pull the right size
tires from stock, and then don't double check them before mounting them.
Esp when you are running bigger rims and lower profile tires, which
might be your case, as you didn't say anything to the contrary.
If we're talking about STOCK tires for STOCK tires here then
your driver side door decal will state the factory installed tires as
to their proper size. Any modification to that as to bigger rims and
lower profile tires has to be done to factory recommended specs. Lets
hope so anyway!
If I were you I would be double checking everything, as to what was
actually done, and as to what tires, etc were put on your SUV.
The clue to your problem lies right there to start with! After all
nothing was mentioned about any "pulling" before you had the new tires
Here's one last big clue as to if you actually got a "bad alignment" on your Jeep SUV.
Have someone else drive behind you on an empty straight flat street (or
else have someone else drive your Jeep and you follow behind about 4 to
5 car lengths back). If your Jeep's body is trying to track crooked (as
if on an angle diagonal to straight ahead) as the tires are trying to
track straight ahead - then you definitely just got a bummer
I'm putting my money this is the case, as I've seen it so many times it's not funny.
It called a "shade tree alignment" and for good reason.
