2001 ford e-250 tire size

The problem with the 245 is it is taller then the 225 and wider so your speedo will be off 5 to 10 miles per hour unless you have it reset. This will also put a strain on the trans because itcauses more heat to build up in the transmission. Ford and the other warrantee companys will also void any warrantee that you have.

Wrong tire size?

P designates a tire for a passenger car, 225 is the width of the tire in mm, 75 is the ratio of sidewall height to the width (eg thesidewalls are 225*0.75=168.75 mm tall), R is the type of tire (radial), and 16 is the diameter of the tire in inches. Customizing the tires gives you different performance results.

If you want your car to act according to how the manufacturer specified, go back to the stock tires. However, your current tires have a larger diameter than the stock, which means your rims are also larger than stock; you would probably have to replace the rims as well, which can be expensive.

I would stick with your new sizes. Different sized tires will not harm your vehicle in any way. I would also recommend going to a store that offers lifetime warranties like Les Schwab; they are invested in insuring that that everything is fitting correctly so they don't have to refund you anything.

Original tire size is 215/65r16 can i replace this with a tire size of 235/65r16, this is for toyota sienna sienna ce 2004

You can do this but i do not recommend it because the tire diameter is much bigger, this throws off the speedo reading and affects the transmission operation. Contact the and see what tire sizes you can use that might be bigger (wider tread foot print) but with the same diameter.

Two different wheel sizes r14 on the front and r15 on the back. Its a hyundi getz is this correct to have the two sizes on it.

No, it puts a hamper on rotating tires. You have 2 different sized rims and that is unusual. In most cases when you see this it is because someone is running larger wider tires on the back to achieve some custom look. I would replace 2 of them to make them all the same size. Typically in the door frame or gas cap cover in some vehicles, there is a sticker that recommends the proper tire size. In the end it won't matter if you go with 14 or 15 since that is only indicating the rim Diameter and not the actual tire diameter which would effect the accuracy of your speedometer. The Sticker or owners manual will indicate what the vehicle should have.

I would like to replace the original P235 65R 18 tires on my sport trac with all terrain tires

Hello, there is really no problem what pattern is on the tread, you only run into problems by changing sizes. There is a really good tire sizer in the Discount site. You use some of the tools in the site and you can find out what you can use on the rims you have if you want to change sizes.

They also have a MPH calculator which will tell you about the speedometer error from changing tire sizes. The All-Terrain tires have wider grooves on them and will tend to be nosier than All-Season tires. You can also save some money on buying tires with the proper Speed rating for your vehicle.
The faster the speed rating, the more expensive the tire.

You should check your current tires and look at the speed rating for them, it will be on the sidewall. You would want the same or better as your stock tires. Watch for the load rating too!
Everybody has an opinion on Brands and surprisingly, some Brands make a great tire in one size and the same Brand, same Tire type, can be lousy in another rim size. Ford puts All-Terrain tires on some vehicles, just go to a New car lot and look at what they are installing on the new models.

My lexus RX330 keeps is not charging the battery, what type of battery to replace it and will it recharge it self?

The batter could be the fault, should be a 065 size thats UK size, although it may be a loose altenator belt or a bust altenator, it could be on its way out, when you get a new battery fitted ask them to test the chrge coming back from the battery if it is still low then the battery is not the fault.

Hope that helps

Raplace wiper blades for a Lexus RX330 2004. What are the recommended brands: Bosch, Anco, Denso, Other?

There isn't really a recommended brand for a wiper,it is more personal preference.I can assure you that all blades are made the same basic way.I always buy the cheapest ones personally.Paying a dollar or more extra for a specific brand is not really going to result in longer lasting enough to make a difference.One thing you will need to know is the size required for each side.Some are the same size,some are different.Mine needs an 18" on one side and a 20" on the other.If they are sold in pairs I have another set available already.One brand I do recommend NOT buying is the triple bladed,I think the brand name is Rain-X,if they still exist.There are 3 blades where as a normal one has only one.The extra resistance caused by the 3 blades does not seem like much but there were issues with it in the past about them possibly burning up wiper motors.For better rain resistance on your windshield,I wax the windshield occassionally.There are all kinds of chemical supplements around to do the same but who knows what they do to the blades and windowseal.Wax is very safe and non-corrosive.I am sorry if you think i wrote too much but I educate and inform as much as possible so you can make a well informed decision and know you are doing the right thing.Also,basically the same thing goes for tires.They are all basically the same.Ever since vulcanization and adding reinforcing metal,it's all about equal.If you have front wheel drive,when you get any suspension work done(CV's,ball joints) or replace the tires,get a front end alignment after for maximum performance.Good luck!

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.

What size alloys. Ford Calypso 1997

Yes. The last number on a tire size is the diameter of the rim, when it changes so too must the tire. The bigger the tire the more they cost.
You also have to pay attention to the width of the rim, side to side. Somes tires need a wider rim than others, so ask when you are buying the rims what width they need tires to be because wider tires cost more too. Hope this helps.

Specs on 2002 jeep grand cherokee alloy wheels R16

the tires & rims that come with your vehicle are designed to meet all the specs of your vehicle. When you change sizes and styles, you then need to get the computer re programmed with the tire changes you have made. It affects your speedometer, your transfer case, your fuel (mpg) and the performance of the engine to the wheals. Also you can damage your transmission and rear end. So my advise is to buy a high end tire that meets origional specs. Look at the Toyo's they are great tires, great performance and no alterations are needed. Pluss they look cool as hell so try that
check this site out and call them, they have better deals on the phone and have fricking great prices on tires.

Let me know how it goes.
