If you change from the manufactures original tire size, not only will you have steering and handling problems but you will have problems with the performance of the van. The pcm makes thousands of calculations every second to keep the engine running at it's peak performance. These are based on everything remaining original (Tire Size). If you change the tire size it will alter everything the computer does. Including making your speedometer and odometer give you false readings. Your best bet is to stay with the original tires.

Would these measurements fit? I have a 2012 Chevy Equinox LT and looking to put on new rims and tires. These are the measurements for tire: 225/45 ZR 17. The rims are 7.5 J X 17 H2. Would these fit?


what you need to find out the most is the backspacing of the wheels not rims.. search your vehicles wheels on google and figure it all out. if the backspacing is not enough the wheel will hit the brake caliper. have fun stay dirty.

I have 235/60/16 tires on my Freestar. My question here is, can I put a smaller sized tire on this 16inch rim? If so, what size tire can I use? I am looking to save money. Thank you.


A smaller size tyre (tire) will affect the handling of you car, you might even find you insurance will not pay out if you or someone else has to make a claim against you.

What is the original size tire and rim for a 1997 expedition


The best way to find out is the door sticker on the driver side door.

There are two possibles sizes for that truck. The 16" rim or 17" rim.
The tire size is P255/70R16 or P265/70R17.

The factory sticker on the door jam on the driver side will tell you what it came out of the factory with.

Looking for a different tire for Suzuki XL7 (2007). Currently has the factory tires Bridgestone 235/60-17 which are a strange size. Need to know if a Cooper CTS 245/65-17 will rub the wheel wells?? Any...


I do not know for certain whether the larger tires will fit; but here is how you can check.

The 235/60-17 Bridgestone Dueler H/T D684 II have a diameter of 28.3 inches, rim width of 7, section width of 9.3 and a tread width of 7.8. When compared to 245/65-17 Bridgestone Dueler H/T D684 II the diameter(29.5) is 1.2 inches larger and the section width(9.8) is 0.5 inch larger. The rim width and tread width are the same. You would need to check existing clearances and then compare to the additional size required to verify fitment.
The above data is from TireRack (see web address below)
http://www.tirerack.com/tires/Spec.jsp?make=Bridgestone&model=Dueler+H%2FT+D684+II&tirePageLocQty=

Tire Rack carries 5 different tires from 3 brands(Bridgestone, BFG, and Kumho) in the 235/60-17 size at $66 to $119 each. I have bought many tires from them without a problem. They do not carry Cooper tires.

This is going to effect your ABS and odometer readings. Suggest sticking with the 17 inch tires and can use your original rims.
