If you can tell me the size of your current tires, I can give you a correct 15" tire size to keep as close as possible to your stock calibrations for speedometer, odometer, and suspension clearance.

    You'd want to run a 195-60-15 tire, which should be an easy size to find. It will give you a 0.1mph error on your speedometer (when your gauge reads 60mph, you'll be going 59.9mph), so it's virtually dead-on accurate. To run a 195-section tire, you'd want to get 15"x6.5" wheels with a +38 offset, and a 4x114 bolt pattern. www.tirerack.com is having a wheel clearance event, and I checked their site - they have wheels in this specification for your car for as low as $99 per wheel:)

What could cause front driverside vibration


Front driver side tyre out of balance. The balance weights used to be clipped on the rim, but with alloy wheels they a stuck to the inside of the wheel with double sided tape. Could be a bent rim if you hit a kerb in ice or snow.

Will a13in 4-100 rim off a honda fit on a 2005 hyundai accent


The bolt pattern may be the same (Hyundai accent uses 4 x 100 bolt pattern) but the wheel centre bore size and wheel offset are likely to be different. There may also be brake clearance issues. The only effective way to deal with this is to check some of the basic wheel specs and then do a test fit on the car. If the wheel's centre bore size is too small for the Hyundai hub you won't even need to do a test fit as the wheel cannot be used.



1. Center Bore

If the Honda wheel has the same or a larger centre bore size then they will fit on the hub but if larger you will need hub rings to fill the gap between the centre bore and the hub. If you do not fit the hub centric rings you will get vibrations (like an out of balance wheel gives you) as the wheel will not be properly centred on the hub.



If the Honda wheel has a smaller centre bore then it will not fit over the Hyundai hub and you cannot use it.



2. Brake Caliper Clearance

Manufacturers design their stock wheels to clear the size of brake calipers they use but sometimes these clearances are very small.

The Honda wheel may or may not clear the brake calipers when you bolt it on, (which is primarily a factor of both wheel and brake design), and in that event you cannot use it.



3. Offset

The Honda and Hyundai stock wheels will have different offsets.

If the Honda wheel has a much higher offset measurement it may not have sufficient clearance on the inside of the wheel well because the higher offsets places the wheel rim further inside the wheel well.

If the Honda wheel has a much lower offset, this places the wheel rim further to the outside of the vehicle. This is less of an issue unless the tires hit the guards when you get a great deal of suspension movement or the tyres extend out beyond the guards which is illegal.

My tire size is 185/65 R 14. can I changed or put tire 195/60 R 15?


No ---not unless you put a 15" rims on the car. The tyre sizing reads like this
185 is the width of the rim from bead to bead in millimetres
the 65 is the profile height --- distance of the rim from the road surface
r is for radial
14 is the rim diameter in inches
now you can understand why a 15"tyre will not fit a14" rim

Tire size


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

What rim size for a 215/55/16 tyre? I currently have all 4 tyres on as-supplied alloy wheels, each December I change my fronts for winter tyres, for which the tyre shop make a charge. I am thinking about...


16 is the rim size and most modern ones will take 215 tyre. Of more concern is the PCD (which dictates how holes line up) would suggest a trip to a breakers and get 4 from any VW Passat (or other) of similar age

What size alloys. Ford Calypso 1997


Yes. The last number on a tire size is the diameter of the rim, when it changes so too must the tire. The bigger the tire the more they cost.
You also have to pay attention to the width of the rim, side to side. Somes tires need a wider rim than others, so ask when you are buying the rims what width they need tires to be because wider tires cost more too. Hope this helps.

17in alloys wheels makes strange sound


what design are they, two thing could be doing it, if the obviouse touching has already been investigated, one is the design, if the spokes/hub sits out further than the rim than the outer of the rim they could be catching the wind and making some freaky noises, or if the center dishes in then maybe they are "loud" tyres by that i mean do the tyres have wide grooves, directional etc, high performance tyres are in principle very noisy. hope this has been handy.

2001 chevy blazer rim offset size?


From what I found online, the 2wd version of the truck uses the size wheel you have (15x7). The offset for that vehicle is -6. For the 4wd version, the OEM wheel size is 16x8 and the offset is +50.

Every other week i'm getting flat tyres very unexpectedly. The tyre pressure warning light comes on but instantly the tyre is completely flat. Apparently its due to corrosion of alloy rims, how can i get...


Hi,

A temporary workaround/remedy is to put innertube inside the tire. Even if the alloy rims could not longer provide a good air tight seal, the inner tube would still hold the air. You may need to specify the tire size and width. Additionally, you may want to ask your tireman to likewise install a buffer of some sort between the innertube and the alloy rim. This is to prevent the any sharp portion of the corroded alloy rim puncturing the inner tube. Some local tiremen use a cutoff/old inner tubre as buffer.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
