Tire size for 92 camaro anniversary edition

I have a problem, i went to get new tires for my 92 camaro and after looking at them- i notice that there is about a 5" gap from my rear wheel well to the top of the tire and hardly any gap in the fronts. once when i took it to be balanced, the tire ppl rotated criss cross and my car sat like a teeter totter. i was told that the rear tires where larger than the front. now the ppl who replcd them now say i am wrong and that it is the "rim offset"?

Look onm the sidewall of your tires...there are numbers on there tha indicate size...example (not your car) 225 70 r15 ......225 is the size,(how tall) 70 is the aspect ratio (but not terribly important here) and r means radial, 15 is the size of the hole in the center where the wheel goes.
Ifg all tires have the same number then they are the same size. Usually there is a sticker inside the door (the part where the latch is) that lists the proper size.
Rim offset is how far in from the face of the wheel (where the tire meets the wheel) the mounting flange is. Most wheels have the flange half way between inside and outside edge. That is "0" offset. If the flange is nearer to the outside that is negative, more towards the inside, positive. Either way offset has nothing to do with height. You can customize cornering by using more positive offset at the rear but you can't put those wheels in the front. I just listed enough stuff for you to get an idea whats going on, If you have the facts right, then the shop is not telling you the truth.
A side note to this is if you have abs brakes, you need to have all four tires the same size or the computer will read slippage where there is none and mis apply the brakes.

    Likely I've been doing this too long...I managed to get the analysis wrong on how tire #s work. What you really need to remember though is that the larger number (actually reflects tread width) always is taller than one with a lower number. a 225 first # is much taller than a 175.even though the second # determines sidewall height. (sounds confusing but just go by the first # and you will be safe...Everything else I said is good. Sorry if I confused you but I always try to get it right, and always admit when I've made a mistake!!! Bottom line is that all tire numbers must match and correct number is found where I stated.

Look at the tire. read what it saids its the large print. the mach them you. you can also are they the same rims. now the shop that you took it to. by law they can not send you off there lot in a unsafe car. if they dont put them back tell them you have the papper work and if you get into a crash you will sue the shop and the person that put them on and the person who signed off on the papper work. but DO NOT LET THEM HAVE YOUR PAPPER!!! they should not charge you its there fault. and if you can bring a camcorder with you.

Tires for 92 bucik regal

If you have 15" mags, you will need 15" tires.
The way tire sizes work is as follows:
  • The first number (205) is the TREAD WIDTH in millimeters;
  • The second number (70) is the percentage of the specified tread width the measurement between the tread and the wheel is (which means that the distance between the tread and the wheel is 143.5mm).
  • The third number, 15, is the rim diameter in INCHES.
Do a little math and you can figure out the proper size tire for your vehicle with the after-market wheels you are using.

My car makes a loud humming noise while driving when turning left. its fine while going straight or right. Wheel bearing?

Possible. If you have changed tires lately, make sure they put the right size tires on. If they went up in size by any measure, it could be rubbing on the tire well and thus making the noise. Check the users manual if you have it and check to make sure the tire sizes are correct. Also check your power steering fluid. That would make a humming or moaning noise but it would be noticeable while turning.

92 buick front end wobble

if it is a belt in the tire, when you slide your hand over the tire you would feel a bulge that feels like a air bubble. if not than you need to have them check the wheel bearing and the power steering rack.

hope this helped
please rate well.
