The size you are after should be on the sidewall of the tyres already on the vehicle. There could also be the tyre size in the owners manual

I have a 2001 pt cruiser needs rims and tires size on it now are235/45/R17 size on chart inside driver door is 195/65/R15 or 205/55/R16 not sure which size to buy please help thankyou


The number after the r is the rim size. According to your post you have 17 inch rims. Stock rims were 15 inches or optional 16 inches. Unless you are putting a different size rim on then you need a17 inch tie to fit your current rim

Wrong tire size?


P designates a tire for a passenger car, 225 is the width of the tire in mm, 75 is the ratio of sidewall height to the width (eg thesidewalls are 225*0.75=168.75 mm tall), R is the type of tire (radial), and 16 is the diameter of the tire in inches. Customizing the tires gives you different performance results.

If you want your car to act according to how the manufacturer specified, go back to the stock tires. However, your current tires have a larger diameter than the stock, which means your rims are also larger than stock; you would probably have to replace the rims as well, which can be expensive.

I would stick with your new sizes. Different sized tires will not harm your vehicle in any way. I would also recommend going to a store that offers lifetime warranties like Les Schwab; they are invested in insuring that that everything is fitting correctly so they don't have to refund you anything.

Im buying a 2001 prado gxl with 265 tyres on it (road tyres) and i have a set of 285 cooper sts these tyers will fit on the rims no probs but will they foul on the gard or scrape anywhere when im off road...


prado is a kind of land cruiser.

The original tire equipment size is 275/70-16 for those vehicles.
If you are currently using 265/70-16 and plans to upgrade to 285... Make sure you verify if your Cooper tires size reflects 285/65-16.
Because, this is the only way you can keep your current settings unchanged with respect to the wheel/tire well size.

Effects (according to Miata.net Tire Size Calculator):
*So, the sidewall remains 7.3 in, the radius (15.3 in) will stay the same, the diameter (30.6 in) will not change, and the number of tire revolutions/mile ( approximately 659.0 revs/mile) remains the same.
Expect, however, the circumference to change only changes from 96.2 in to 96.1in (not a big deal).

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 :)
