Look at an existing tire on your car

On the wall is a set of figures example 195/16 HR

The 195 is the tire width across the treads
The 16 is the rim size
The HR is the speed rating.

SOURCE: tire size for a 96 cavalier

The factory recommended tire size is usually on a sticker on the drivers side door post and in the owners manual. This will keep the speedo calibration correct. If you are customizing the car then you need to go to a tire shop and work with them to determine what sizes will do what you want. You can buy different tire size rims with various offsets that allow for larger tires to be put on a vehicle. Hope this helps, RAC

SOURCE: 1996 chevy blazer tire size

stock is generally the 235/75r15, but if you can find someone to install them or do it yourself easily be able to run 31x10r15 for a little meatier look, this would involve a slight trim of the front skirt edge on some models or depending on your suspension. Any tire shop would easily be able to tell you stock tires or what would fit, but most major retailers (walmart, fleetfarm) will not install ANY tire not listed as factory. so you would have to find a private shop then.

I just bought a 2004 chevy Malibu. It came with P195/65R15 tires. It says on the inside door panel that it should have P205/65R15 size tires. What's the difference and will I still get the average...

The smaller P195 will turn the motor faster & get less mpg

The difference is in the outside diameter of the tire

How much would snow tires for a 2002 chevy malibu cost?

tire prices will vary greatly depending on the brand, style, tread life, quality, and size. Your best bet would be to resource your local tire stores and online tire dealers. Places like firestone, goodyear, discount tire, tires plus, pep boys, and come to mind. The size of tire you need is on the side of the tires that are already on the vehicle. It will be something like 205/70R15.

If you want the best, IMO, winter tire check out the Bridgetstone Blizzaks. I have never been disappointed with them and usually get 2 winters out of a set. They are NOT an all season tire and should only be used in the winter. I should also add that if you do get them get all four. This will optimize your traction on all four corners of the vehicle. You may find the back end of the car spinning if you decide to only do two, which is not good.

Tire pressure

Seance the car manufactures most likely did not produce the tires that are on the vehicle they will only give there recommendations as to the correct tire pressure. Always look around the perimeter of the tire and it will tell you the proper pressure for that tire. hope this helps. Good luck.

SVC Tire Monitor

If this warning came up soon after the tire was replaced then the most likely cause is the tire installer damaged the pressure sensor inside the tire. They are easy to damage.
