Tire size


Yes as long as u change the rims also not just the tires these numbers 195/60/15 195 is tire width 60 is tire height and 15 is rim size, most all Hondas will fit up to 215/35/18 with no rubbing issues on factory suspension ..... Every time the rim size changes u have change the height of the tire so it will fit some go as far as " stretching " the tire to allow larger rims or extreme offsets

Beside 225/50/16 what other size can fit a 2002 Mercury Cougar


Your best choice is to use the DiscountTire.com website and use the optional tools available. You can enter your vehicle and the site can be made to do alternate tire sizes.

There are some choices on the left side of the home screen and you can even find out the true road speed versus speedometer readings if you use an optional tire upgrade.

Now there are several ways to change things. Width and sidewall profile both contribute to Revolutions per mile. My Mercury car came with 60 Series tires, changing to a 65 Series of the same width gave me a 5% boost in fuel mileage with a corresponding speedometer error.

You do have some limits, wheel rim width will not work on extreme tire changes. Different width wheels would be needed. You have to consider clearance issues between the tire and frame of the car on turns. Both the inside edges of the tire must clear the frame.

The total tire height reflects 1/2 the distance change below and 1/2 the change above the wheel rim. So ride height would change and wheel opening clearance would change.

You have many choices of tire size. In sidewalls, they make 55, 60, and 65 Series tires. In width, 225,235,245 and P metric. Use the Discount Tire site, maybe the Tirerack site and work with the numbers.

Go to a Tire shop and have then pull a 50 Series, 55 Series, and 60 Series.tire in the same width. You will be able to see for yourself what the numbers mean.

I would feel comfortable saying an upgrade to a 55 Series would be no problem. You should have a Label on the doorjam to show tire sizes and inflation rates.

Please rate my info.

When a tire change is done is there a reason the low air warning light goes on?


ok first question did you put the exact same tire size that was on the car factory. If you change the tire size then the pressure for the tire goes up or down to meet that tire spec. your car just reads what the settings are for the stock tires so a change in size will make the sensor think the tire is low. If you put the same size tire back on then the system may jusy need reset.

Well ,2004 tribute there is a noise, all the time and I was told that may be from tires,that is from tire shop, but tires are still about 80% left, and if I change tires and the noise is still there what...


If you have large tire tread then it is probably tire to road noise, this is nothing to worry about. The best way to tell is driving on different road surfaces. the noise will change as the road changes.

you have tire pressure sensor that id's each tires pressure. After rotating or changing tire it must be reset to "see" pressure of each tire. Your user manual should have the proceedure. Each manufacturer is different.

Change spare tire removing spare tire


Put the car on a level ground, with the transmission in PARK. Lossen the nuts of the tire to change. Chuck back-tires if changing front, or chuck front-tires if changing back-tires. Jack up the car enough to raise the concerned tire off the ground. Remove nuts, and pull out the tire. Put in spare tire.
Hand tighten the nuts a considerable, but you might use the wrench to tighten a bit because this is a big/heavy car. Lower the car, and again tighten the nuts securely in a diagonal pattern with the wrench- two grunts used to be the rule of the thumb.

What kind of tires does my car use?? I have a scion tc 2005.. and im about to change its 4 tires for the first time.. but i was wondering if they have to be the exact same size.. any ideas?


Your tire size is marked on the sidewall of your tire, it will read something like this, P205/70R15. There may be other numbers or letters but these are the critical ones that the tire shop needs to fit new tires on your car.
You car is set up to run on a specific size tire but changes can be made, for any number of reasons, without too many problems as long as you know what to expect. Changing the P205 number will change tour speedometer about 2 mph per size. Going from P205 to P195 will slow the car down and going up to P215 will speed it up the same. The speedometer will read the same but the car will be moving at the new rate of speed.
Changing the middle number, 70 will make your tire wider or narrower and the numbers work backwards. A 60 tire is wider than a 70 tire. This can affect your gas mileage but one number won't be especially noticeable. If you are buying snow tires for winter then 75 is the best number for that. The tire is thin and cuts through snow to make contact with the road.
Changing the last number 15 requires you to change the rims. That number is the diameter of the rim and there really isn't much reason to change them unless you are customizing your car.
Price comes into play more than brand name. You don't need that $250 super sticky tire for normal every day driving which you can do just as well on a plain jane $125 tire.The sticky tires use softer rubber and wear out quicker.
Finally, do not believe anyone who tells you that all season tires are suitable for snow and ice. They work better than summer tires if you get caught in a freak storm, but they aren't suitable for everyday winter driving. If you live in an area where there is a considerable amount of ice on the roads throughout the winter you should seriously consider getting you tires studded for improved stability, handling and stopping. Hope this helps.

Tire presure sensor replacement or change if required


As for the dealers, they tend to change the tire pressure sensor. It's most likely in there policy since they know the sensor will need to be replaced soon after and don't want too see you again for a bad tire pressure sensor.
There are good tire shops out there that have good training that will not damage the sensor that is in the rim which in most case is connected to the valve stem.
Keep in mind that there are two types of monitor device. There is the Direct system which has a sensor/transmitter inside the wheel.
The other type is the Indirect system which works off the ABS system and counts the rotation of the wheel. As one of the tire is low on air pressure the rotation is different and the ABS will signal the ECM to indicate that there is a lost of air from which tire.
One of the best leading tire company out there is "Tire Rack" Log on to www.tirerack.com to help you make a wise destination.
Good luck and hope this helped
