Discount tire has a free online tire caculator that you will be able to put your old size in and then play witht he new size. It will give you the circumfreance diffrance. This is mainly a prefrance thing. Some people like them to look realy good and will deal with a little rubbing, some like it to be alot more funcinal.

Can I do this? WHEEL SWAP 2005 COLORADO


try putting one wheel of what you want to do on a hub to see if it fits
check for stud pattern and that the studs fit in the center of each hole
next measure the distance from the rim edge ( use a straight edge across the diameter and measure from that edge to the stud holes are ( measuring rim off set)
if both wheels measure the same then they should fit
go to a tire dealer and get the details of each rim to see if it can be done
the major items to be aware of are the stud pattern is the same pitch circle diameter ( bolts in the same circle ) and the center off set of the rim

I bought a set of 13" for my 1400 bakkie. So my question would be which is the right size of tyres to fit? If one is looking for a wider/balloon shape on the rim to maintain balance.


if these rims are 13" 5.5jj rims then the biggest tire that you can fit safely is about 195 85 r13
if you go too wide on the tire then the tire beads will not sit properly on the rim and will roll on turns causing a blow out at the worst possible time
talk with a tire shop and get the details on the biggest tire that you can fit legally and safely on the car
after all when it comes to safety , looks can be deadly

What tires can fit a 1999 ford expedition xlt


I believe it will fit. If you go to DiscountTires.com you can use their site for alternate tire sizes. Especially handy is the feature which shows you the Speedometer error for different size tires. The site will also show you recommended and popular substitute tire and wheel sizes.

The 1999 model had a 265/65/17 as an alternative. You may want to ask the Tire store you intend to use if they can reconfigure your Speedo to be accurate. Some of the Fords can be done electrically without changing Speedo gears.

I did something similar by going from a "60" series to a "65" series in the same width. On my Grand Marquis, I gained 5% mileage improvement, but have to watch Speedo until I get it reconfigured. I hope this helps to answer your questions.

Can a 265/40 17 fit on a rim that came from the factory with a 245/45 17 tire?


The tire will fit the rim but your speedometer will not be as accurate as it was due to the lower aspect ratio.
