SOURCE: MY TIRES
on the side of the tire you will see a tire size, it should read something like this 175 55 R15 ms or something like that, look at all the tire sides, all or them if they are the same should have the R then a number like 15 or 16 or 17 etc. that is the rim size, look at the first number and the last one, cause the first will tell you the height, a 165, 155,175,etc. all the numbes on all the tires should be the same unless you have preformance tires on it then the front will be smaller then the back tires.... hope this helps you out.....

Those wheels are what is referred to as "staggered" meaning different sizes front and rear. If you measure the width of the wheels the rear ones will be wider. I'm not sure what size you are supposed to be using but the rears should be wider. This kind of setup is not designed to be rotated. You could rotate side to side but this won't even your wear out.

I would advise you to leave both sides with 235 45 17 this tire size would provide you with better handling and improved comfort also tires wil be more protected of suffering damage in the sidewalls caused by bumps and potholes just remember to keep them inflated at 38 +/- 2 psi.

SOURCE: Tires matter on same size rim?
both tires will fit on the 15 inch rim
But be advised make sure you have same size tires on the drive wheels being as your car is front wheel drive u want both the front tires to be the same size
if this is not done u will burn up your transmission
if you have to put a odd ball tire on put it on the rear
exact opposite is true for rear wheel drive car on a rear wheel drive car u want both rear tires to be the same size

The number after the r is the rim size. According to your post you have 17 inch rims. Stock rims were 15 inches or optional 16 inches. Unless you are putting a different size rim on then you need a17 inch tie to fit your current rim
