The taller the tire, the more comfortable the ride. Low profile tires are meant to be stiff. There's also different quality tires, there's quieter tires, softer ones, etc... If you're drifting and damaging wheels and tires I understand, but if it's common to one rim, and you're driving appropriately, that rim might be bent.

What size tyres camaro 1997 3800rs v6


The wheels could have been changed on the car from the standard original factory set and hence the tyre size may not be the standard factory original size.
The size of the tyres on the vehicle now is moulded into the side wall of the tyres and is easy to read.
Check all 4 tyres because larger size tyres may have been fitted as a pair to the rear.

The size might read - for example 245 45 18 or 235 45 17 (there are a huge number of sizes for each model of tyre).

The first 3 numbers are the width of the tyres in mm eg 225 mmm or 235 mm and so on. The second 2 numbers are the tyre profile size or ratio (which can be 70 65 60 55 50 45 40 and so on. The third number is the wheel diameter size. If you have 18 inch wheels on the car the tyres will read 18 or if they are 17 inch wheels the tyres will read 17 and so on.

I recently replaced Michelin tires 235/65/18 to upgraded Michelin 235/60/18 each costing almost $300. Am I right to be worried of the aspect rations between the tires.. These tired were purchased and...


the main thing is that you know how much difference is what the speedometer is reading & what your actual speed is, because you have gone from a 65 down to 60 tyre the rolling diameter is smaller therefor there will be a difference so therefor the speedometer is reading faster than you are actually going hence more fuel used over the same distance.....hope this helps......cheers.

Tire pressure light:


Take it to the dealer, any faults should be repaired under warranty with such a new vehicle. One thing to look out for: Have you had a puncture recently and had it repaired? Or any tyre work done? The sensors are located inside the rim and can easily be damaged by someone removing or refitting tyres carelessly. If the sensor is damaged in this manner there will be no warranty coverage, but you might be able to get the tyre company to pay for it (if you can prove they damaged it).
