you will need new rims but if they do it correctly (i.e. change the aspect ratio of the tire to counter act the rim size increase) this will not effect the speedometer.

Depending on what type of monitor it has its could be an easy fix. If they use a band type monitor that wraps around your wheel just have your tire shop pull the monitors off all your wheels and put all four of them on your spare. Given, you'll never know when your tires are low via dash light but we all managed to do without that for years anyway. On the plus side you'll be POSITIVE on the pressure of your spare.

SOURCE: What tires can fit a 1999 ford expedition xlt

I believe it will fit. If you go to DiscountTires.com you can use their site for alternate tire sizes. Especially handy is the feature which shows you the Speedometer error for different size tires. The site will also show you recommended and popular substitute tire and wheel sizes.

The 1999 model had a 265/65/17 as an alternative. You may want to ask the Tire store you intend to use if they can reconfigure your Speedo to be accurate. Some of the Fords can be done electrically without changing Speedo gears.

I did something similar by going from a "60" series to a "65" series in the same width. On my Grand Marquis, I gained 5% mileage improvement, but have to watch Speedo until I get it reconfigured. I hope this helps to answer your questions.

Can I put 235/60R16 on 2008 chevy uplander


The stock wheel and tire is ;
wheel - 17 x 6.5 inches
TIRE - 225 60 17 702 mm diameter

If you wanted a 235 60 17 that would be ok but the tire diameter is larger by a small margin.

If you are reducing wheel size with 16 inch wheels in order to fit the 16 inch tires mentioned in your question you better make sure that the smaller diameter wheel will clear the brakes front and rear.

For a 235 tire the wheel width will need to be 6.5 inches minimum.

So if you go with ...............
wheel- 16 x 6.5 or 16 x 7 inch
TIRE - 235 60 16(as in your question)- 688 mm diameter

Provided the 16 inch wheel clears the brakes that would be OK but that tire is slightly smaller in diameter than stock but within an acceptable margin.

Make sure whatever tire you select that the tire load rating is not less than the stock tire and not less than the tire load rating stipulated by General Motors for that vehicle..

What kind of tires should we get for a 2008 Jeep Patriot 4wd. It has Good Year P205/70R16, but we're not very happy with the tires. Do you have any recommendations? Can you put P215/65R17 on a 16"...


No, you sould stay with the recommed size for your vehicle. The 16" is the rim size. If you want a bigger tires and wheels you need to change your rims to 17". If you want good tires you want to look for something with a good rating.The original size for the vehicle is calibrated for speedometer and the ABS of your vehicle and so is you gear ratio in the trans and front and rear differential.

Valve stems typically cost anywhere from $.59 to $2.00 to $3.00 a piece depending on where you go.

Sears would probably charge about $2 or $3 for a valve stem in one tire.

Hi,the 255/55R/19 is just a little taller ( 3/4--1" inch.) than the oem tire and should not be an issue to use, i took the 16" rims & tires off my 99 f-350 truck and put 18" rims and tires from a 2008 f-350 on it ( the dealer said they would not even bolt on!! but they bolted right up with no issues,and they improved my ride tremendously.) as long as you have enough clearance between tire and fender it will not be an issue at all. yz-maniac.

How do you remove the spare tire from a 2006 chevy uplander?


To remove the spare you need to access tools stored in the back of the vehicle, passenger side storage area. Open llftgate, remove net (if equipped), lift tab and remove cover to tool storage. Attach folding wrench to extension, insert 'chisel' end on an angle through the hole in the rear bumper and into the hoist shaft. Turn wrench counter-clockwise to lower spare enough so you can pull it from beneath the van to detach. Good luck!

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.
