I'm trying to change a tire, got a flat, and I cant find where to unlock my tires at, they are custom 18" rims and when I bought the car the guy handed me a set of keys and said these are for the tires, but I cant find where to unlock them at...any ideas?

Have a closer look at the centre of the wheel the centre may pop off and behind there u should see the key if the centre doesnt pop off it may screw off or there may even be a small screw holding it in place

Yes as long as u change the rims also not just the tires these numbers 195/60/15 195 is tire width 60 is tire height and 15 is rim size, most all Hondas will fit up to 215/35/18 with no rubbing issues on factory suspension ..... Every time the rim size changes u have change the height of the tire so it will fit some go as far as " stretching " the tire to allow larger rims or extreme offsets
yes as long as the rim is a 15 inch rim what matters is the diameter not the width of the rim however you want to match the size of you tires as closely as possible as it will cause abnormal wear on your tires, brakes , and traction control to name a few if you cant match all four at least make sure to match the two in the front and try to keep smaller tires to the front and larger tires to the back
I had this on my 1995 540i. It was brake rotors. I replaced them, and all was well! Oh, I also changed brake pads, which you always want to do when you change rotors. Warped rotors is caused by overheating during braking. I have also heard it can be caused by a tire shop using an air impact and seriously overtorquing your lug-nuts. So, if you just changed tires, you might check break-away torque, and return to mark and see what kind of torque they put on them. You might have some recourse if you get them to admit they used one. Good Luck
Sounds like your Rims and Tires are too big. I'm surprised the place that sold them to you didn't tell you those wouldn't fit. Did they at least advise you that the larger tire will through your Speedometer off? If you change the Rim and Tire size you have to change the speed gear in the transmission in order to keep your speedometer accurate.
Took back to store where bought tires and rims. They also put the computer on, but they drove with it attached and the tech who was in passenger seat said left front wheel not calibrated as the others so he calibrated all wheels to .05 at the maximum tire allowance. This has stopped the brakes from grabbing.
Said that the factory had programmed in for 16 inch rims. Jeep came standard with 18 inch.
Now everything working great. Don't know why dealership could not do this properly. Happy I bought tires and rims from a reputable and knowlegeable store. (Tire Craft) Thanks Mike.
