I would like to replace the original P235 65R 18 tires on my sport trac with all terrain tires


Hello, there is really no problem what pattern is on the tread, you only run into problems by changing sizes. There is a really good tire sizer in the Discount tires.com site. You use some of the tools in the site and you can find out what you can use on the rims you have if you want to change sizes.

They also have a MPH calculator which will tell you about the speedometer error from changing tire sizes. The All-Terrain tires have wider grooves on them and will tend to be nosier than All-Season tires. You can also save some money on buying tires with the proper Speed rating for your vehicle.
The faster the speed rating, the more expensive the tire.

You should check your current tires and look at the speed rating for them, it will be on the sidewall. You would want the same or better as your stock tires. Watch for the load rating too!
Everybody has an opinion on Brands and surprisingly, some Brands make a great tire in one size and the same Brand, same Tire type, can be lousy in another rim size. Ford puts All-Terrain tires on some vehicles, just go to a New car lot and look at what they are installing on the new models.

I have a 1979 fiat spider, I am putting 14" rims


Make sure the rims are the correct bot pattern (4 X 98) and hubcentric. As for tire size, goin from a 13 to 14 inch rim is called plus one. The key is tio maintian the same tire diameter so the gear ratio and speedometer arenlt affected.

A stock 13 take a 195SR- 13 tire, wirth the 'SR' being a 75 series tire with a diameter of 24.52 inches. The closest match in 14 inch tires is 215x60-14 with a diamter of 24.16. As close as possible match.

That would as much tire as youi wouls ever need.

The stock size rim is a 16" just as info.. Try a 265/70/15. It will give the width and the heigth that is taken away by the one inch missing on the rims.

What size tires do I put on Pontiac Grand am?


the stock rims should be 16" making the tire size 205/55/16. let me know if you have a different rim size. you can look at the tire size on the tire sidewall and the last number is going to be your rim size. if it's a 15' rim the tires are 195/65/15 and finally for 14" rims the tire size is 195/70/14. hope this helps.

Can I put a 14 x 6 rim with +30mm offset on this vehicle? I can get them cheap for the snow tires I want to mount. The stock rims do not have this much positive offset. I think it is more like +12. I am...


Yes. the 185/70 are a bit slim for the 6-inch rims - but should bite the rim safely. Wider snow tires would give more traction in snow and ice... and fit the 6-inch rims better.... good luck!! (From sunny North Carolina)

Turning problems


My Answer:

The one thing you never mentioned was if you had your Jeep SUV Front-end Aligned after you had the new tires installed?

I'm guessing/hoping you did???

Where did you have the work done at? Be specific here!

Was it a 2-wheel or 4-wheel alignment if that applies here? Big difference it was done RIGHT or if it was done WRONG? That's just maybe part of the problem though if it was indeed MIS-ALIGNED. When you say PULLING - that is a BIG CLUE right there of a possible MIS-ALIGNMENT!!

Not sure what size tires you had on it originally or which size new tires you had put on, but if the new tires were over-sized then you are rubbing on the mainframe or possibly rubbing the front fender wells??

This has happened before, as sometimes they don't pull the right size tires from stock, and then don't double check them before mounting them.

Esp when you are running bigger rims and lower profile tires, which might be your case, as you didn't say anything to the contrary.

If we're talking about STOCK tires for STOCK tires here then your driver side door decal will state the factory installed tires as to their proper size. Any modification to that as to bigger rims and lower profile tires has to be done to factory recommended specs. Lets hope so anyway!

If I were you I would be double checking everything, as to what was actually done, and as to what tires, etc were put on your SUV.

The clue to your problem lies right there to start with! After all nothing was mentioned about any "pulling" before you had the new tires put on.

Here's one last big clue as to if you actually got a "bad alignment" on your Jeep SUV.

Have someone else drive behind you on an empty straight flat street (or else have someone else drive your Jeep and you follow behind about 4 to 5 car lengths back). If your Jeep's body is trying to track crooked (as if on an angle diagonal to straight ahead) as the tires are trying to track straight ahead - then you definitely just got a bummer mis-alignment!

I'm putting my money this is the case, as I've seen it so many times it's not funny.

It called a "shade tree alignment" and for good reason.

Let me know I was right?
