I own a 2000 2.4 lt dodge caravan and rim siza is 14 " .but if I switch tenm for 15" will b a problem or they will not fit at all ?thanl


You can change the rim/tire size to 15 inch as long as the wheel stud pattern is the same. Your speedometer is calibrated for the 14 inch wheel so the speed showing on the speedometer will not be correct. You will be going faster than the speedometer reads

Speedometer not reading right speed in Toyota Tercel.


Have you changed tires/wheels to a different size than was originally specified for this car? That will throw the calibration of your speedometer off. Sometimes the onboard computer can be adjusted to fix this, but you need garage professional programming equipment to do something like this if it is possible to do at all. Otherwise, if your speedometer is off and you haven't changed anything, it may need to be replaced, or the sensor on your drivewheels. Check with a mechanic.

Tire size kia


The closest you can do is to hold them side by side and compare them. You might take one of your wheels to a tire store, and have them show you 16" tires. Try to match them with those that are exactly the same HEIGHT. The width and the rims size don't matter, what you are shooting for is diameter. Don't be at all surprised if the tire store dude argues with my statement here.
Be blessed.

Do oversized tires alter the speedometer. The speedometer stated i was going 65 and the state police clocked me at 79 mph.


Most certainly does
You need a different gear in the trans or transfer case,that drives the speedo
Now if the speed sensor is the output,then you will need help. I personally do not know, if a scan tool can reprogram the ecm/bcm etc, to correct for the tire change.

Ask that question next.

Hi i bought a 2000 beetle and i wonder if anyone could tell me what size alloys come as standard on it. Its been fitted with 18 inch alloys and i think this is causing my speedometer to be incorrect.


The proper size is 16 this is the genuine size of the wheels the bigger wheels will alter the speedo but if you go to a car spares shop you will be able to buy a speedo drive that compensates for the different size wheels so this option would be cheaper than replacing all the wheels so i would get this looked at first.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

Need chrome rims. What size do I need ? Thanks


There should be a sticker on the door near the latch with tire sizes recommended for that vehicle. last # is wheel size (14, 15, etc) This is also the size on the tire itself (205-75-15 is a 15" wheel) Then all you need is to match the bolt pattern. Any wheel retailer knows correct size or buy from someone who has same vehicle. Don't exceed recommended tire sizes unless you intend to also change speedometer to match the new final drive ratio.

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.
