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.....

SOURCE: question on rims on a 1988 IrocZ28. the front rims

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.

SOURCE: 2003 GOLF GTI THE BEST TIRE SIZE FOR 17'' RIMS???

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.

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

Can I replace the 215/70/r15 tires on my 2003 Kia Sedona with 235/75/r15 without an issue? I dont want it to rub anywhere as it is a bigger tire.


there are two differences in the tires
one is bigger in the side wall height and holds the rim edge further from the road
the other is the fitted rim width
that is the problem dimension because if it is wider that the rim dimension it will allow the tire to roll off the rim when cornering
It may also cause problems with rubbing as the side wall are greater than the other size
For legal and exacting information of substituting tires , talk with a tire retailer as they have the experience to know exactly what you have

I have a 2005 nissan sentra. Tire size is 195/60 R15. I have the chance to get 2 195/65 R15 tires at a good price, and want to put them on the back, keeping the 195/60's on the front. Will this be OK? Some...


Hi!

195(width in mm)/60(sidewall height in % of width) R15(rim diameter)

This means, a 195/60 R15 rides lower than a 195/65 R15 tire. Imagine how it would look like when you put these different tire sizes on one car. It can be done but the car will be unbalanced both mechanically and aesthetically. Remember, your car was not designed for different front and rear tire sizes unlike some sports cars.

A 2005 model will most like come standard with ABS as with most cars produced year 2001 onwards.
Just buy 1 tire size for your car. If you wish to change to another tire size, change all the tires.

Good luck!

Is it safe to use a tire size other than the 'stock' 195/55/r15 on a 2003 Mazda Protege DX-Sedan? If so, what are acceptable options other than this size?


Yes , tire sizes can be changed without any problem , as long as you don't go too different. Here is how a tire is measured........
195 is the width of the tire 19.5 centimeters , 55 is a measurement of the amount of rubber outside the metal rim , in your case it is 55% of the width ( 195 ) the r15 is the rim size 15 inch.
You could go to a slightly wider tire with a lower profile , like a 205/50/15 or a slightly narower tire with more profile like a 185/60/15.
The important thing is to try to stay close to the same overall hight . if your old tires are 25" in diameter , try to stay close to that , or you will throw your speedometer out of true.

15" rims to 14"?


There could be a shifted belt in one of the front tires.Take the 2 front tires and swap them from left to right.This means take the left front and put it on the right front and right to left front.Then drive it and see if the it pulls the opposite way.If it does then you have tire in the front.Also make sure they are both the same size.Hope this helps.Good luck.

What size tires a jimmy needs?


Owners manual has the answer. Also on either the door column or inside the fuel door should be a list of original and options tire sizes. Look at the present tires. They are all marked as to their rim size, and dimensions. Probably LT235/75 R15 if they are original now.
