Absolutely not!!!! just purchase a tire of the same size,and preferably same type and manufacture of the others. if the rest are steel belts...make sure this one is too,and remember to have it balanced before you leave the shop.

I got the same problem for my 2007, I changed all four, b/c they worn too much (28,000 miles) down. If just change one, it is too much difference from the other three. It will affact the speed sensor and affact the gear (tire shop and dealer said). The dealer recommend to change all. But, on 10,000 miles they should not have too much difference from the new one. So, the key point is how much worn down on your tire thread. Within 2 to 3 mm difference should be accecptable.

How many kilometers can you drive with a tubeless tire puncture? will it harm the tire or the wheel? at what speed you can drive with the puncture?


Unless you have those "Run-Flat" tires, the answer is "No further than it takes you to safely get out of traffic. One should NEVER run on a flat if it can be avoided, as the sidewalls of the tire can be damaged very quickly. Even with run-flat tires, you still should change it ASAP, but you have a little longer before damage sets in. Your tubeless tires, completely flat and assuming 30 MPH, will probably start showing serious damage in a block or two. Note that tire sidewall damage can not be repaired.

What is the clicking sound in my right tire on my ninety four acura vigor ?


Without looking at the tire or actually hearing whether or not the "clicking": is coming from the tire, I'd have to say that most likely your tire has taken on a hitchhiker: a screw or nail that is "clicking" when it taps the the ground with each tire rotation. Does the speed of the clicking speed up and slow down concurrently with your speed? Have you had to fill the tire lately or semi-regularly? Inspect the tire carefully tread and sidewalls and between the treads....If you do find a screw or nail, don't pull it out as it's all that's keeping you air from really coming out. If you can safely drive, take the car to your selection of tire/auto shops/mechanics, or perhaps put on the spare if you'd feel more safe. As long as the puncture isn't on the side wall or too extensive (and there's actual life in the tread still!) they should easily, quickly and CHEAPLY be able to plug the puncture for you and have you back on the road again in no time!

Good luck!

2008 Saturn Aura XE with p225/50r17 tire but tire info plate on B pillar is unreadable. Anyone know what pressure should be? Please don't tell me to read tire side - as most info plates have lower...


All tires have suggested manufacturer tire pressure displayed on tire sidewall along with other seemingly useless information. Tire may display both a minimum and maximum inflation. The 2007 Saturn Aura we have states the pressure to be 35 minimum, and 44 maximum, although ours uses the 18 inch tire. Check the sidewall to be correct.

My car tires were the standard size P185 65 R14. They were recently changed to P185 60 R15. Will this cause any problems on this car?


Original tire
Sidewall: 4.73 in
Radius: 11.73 in
Diameter: 23.47 in
Circumf: 73.73 in
Revs/mile: 859.37
New Tire
Sidewall: 4.37 in
Radius: 11.87 in
Diameter: 23.74 in
Circumf: 74.58 in
Revs/mile: 849.54

Speedometer reading with new tire is 1.16% too slow.
When your speedometer is reading 60mph you are actually traveling 60.69mph.

That is your tire pressure monitor light it is indicating that one of you tires is under inflated please use an accurate tire gauge and fill all the tires including the spare to 35 PCI and drive the car it should go out, you may have a nail on the low tire so keep an eye on it please rate

What is the difference between tire size 255/70 and 265/70


Hello Projocs03,

Tires are typically measured tire width (sidewall)/tire ride height/wheel size. The differences of the two tire sizes you published are .4 of an inch difference in width/sidewall. And about .55 in over all diameter which would impact you revs per rotation. Depending on your wheel size.

Attached is a comparison of the two given the variable of 17" rim.

I added the above link so you can research further or change any variables you need to know. However, the most important thing to understand is the impact of your speedometer. Different sizes will have different impacts. For example going to a bigger tire will show a slower speed on your spedo that your traveling.

Good luck

My daugher has a 2008 prius, had a flat tire and now has the spare tire on. What is the maximum distance and speed she should drive


I do not know the maximum distance, but there should be a wear indicator on the tire. Usually the max speed on doughnut tires is around 50 mph but the owners manual will clarify. Usually the spare will have a max speed posted on it somewhere with a sticker.
Please let me know if I can further assist you.

TPMS light on dashboard of my 2007 Hyundai Sonata with 77,000 miles. First came on 3 hours after I had the the right rear tire repaired with 2 nails in sidewall from independent tire dealer. Took back to...


I don't know enough about the TPMS systems to give you any clue as to what is going on there.

However, it is generally an unacceptable practice to try to repair a tire that has a puncture in the sidewall. The flexing of the sidewall can cause the repair to fail. I would drive very carefully and slowly on a tire that has had such a repair.
