You can change the size to 17". But, you'll need to look at changing the AIR PRESSURE SENSORS over to the new rim.

Yes; however, your speedometer will be incorrect.

Your speedometer will say 30mph and your vehicle will be travelling SLOWER (like 28mph).

The drivetrain gear ratio effect will also be changed. Your apparent ratio will be lower. More power, but less fuel efficient.

Please consider other experts' opinions...

I Have a Toyota Sienna LE 2006 with tires 215/65/R16, can I replace them with tires 225/65/r16?


A cheaper route and one that would keep your speedometer more accurate would be 215/70R/16. Slightly taller, less footprint, but more accurate and true to your actual speed.

Will 16 inch tires fit on a 97 ford windstar


If the stud pattern and off set is the same they will fit on. The problem is that regulation requires the ride height to be maintained which means that you will have to fit a lower profile tyre . For example if you use 15 " 205/95-r15 tyres then you may have to go to 205/65 r16 tyres . Talk with a tyre shop and discuss the legal requirements as far as insurance goes with a wheel size change

Will stock 16 in wheels with P245/75/R16 tires fit on stock 1999 2x4 ranger with out rubbing? or maybe with torsion bar adjustment?


Barely but they do fit. If you went to 275's then you would be having other problems

you need to understand how tire measurements work.

P245 = the width (245mm)
75 = Ratio of the Width or 75% of the Width
16 - Tire Rim Size

so the height is the issue, the wider the tires, you start to have another problem.

Width for turning
Height for Bottoming out

Factoy tire size


The factory size is P185/65R14.
I have a Honda Civic and i cold Wisconsin winter use a set of Blizzak winter tires P185/65R14 on steel rims.
If ambient temperature warms up above 45F degree, I use a set of tires P205/45R16 Falken Ziex Ze-912, mounted on 16 inches aluminum rims.
Using all season tires is a good compromise too.

Tire and Rim Problem


It appears that you have the wrong size wheels on the rear (17). Standard tire size on that vehicle is 265/75/16. You all so have a full size spare. Keep in mind that if this is a 4 wheel drive vehicle, damage to the drivetrain can result if you continue to drive with diffrent size tires.

Toyota Sienna winter tire


No. You do NOT want to put 15" rims on this car. That will change a lot of things, and they all will be bad. The 15" rims will create problems with the ABS, and the ABS will not work properly.
Secondly, the speedometer will be way off, as the speedo is calibrated for the 16s. Third, and probably most important, your handling will be severly compromised. Please don't do the 15s.
Its not worth the problems that you will encounter.
a FixYa rating (4 blue diamonds) would be appreciated for my input.

Winter Tires


BFGoodrich makes a REALLY nice tire for the beetle that fits on the stock alloy rims. If you have the 16 inch rims you'll probably need to be running 205/55/r16's. I can't remember the exact name, but they make some decent winter treads. Either way, the beetle isn't the greatest in the snow so I fixed my problem in a different manner.

I got 4 rims off a beetle from the junk yard and put 215/55/r16's on them. They are a winter tread from Hercules Tire. They really helped my 01 beetle in the snow. It may have been expensive, but they keep wear and tear of winter driving off of my clutch. Also, it saves some of the tread on my Yokohama tires :)
