Yes.. there are left and right side wheels.. I doubt it will affect performance or will damage anything but there is a direction of rotation for the style of the wheel.. it is mostly appearance.

Remember if the tires you bought are directional .. they will have to remount them. I would guess the wheels are marked somewhere..

The "spokes" should be oriented with the trailing edge pointed rearward. This picture is the Passenger side or Right Wheel.. Best of Luck..

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

Front right tire is making a noise when it is moving it shakes need help


More than likely a broken belt in the tire, or a bent rim. switch the front tires around, if the problem moves to the left, you will know for sure it's the wheel and not the truck. Any tire repair shop can tell you if it's the tire or rim. Stock rims are cheaper to replace from junkyard than they are to have repaired.

When a tire change is done is there a reason the low air warning light goes on?


ok first question did you put the exact same tire size that was on the car factory. If you change the tire size then the pressure for the tire goes up or down to meet that tire spec. your car just reads what the settings are for the stock tires so a change in size will make the sensor think the tire is low. If you put the same size tire back on then the system may jusy need reset.

There are chrome rims on the car I bought about 4 years ago. I took the car in to discount tire because one of the tires continue to go flat on a weekly basis. I was told that the rims got wet inside which...


moisture in a mounted tire will rust a steel rim from the inside out with chrome it gets under the chrome plating and attacks the steel rim which peels,flakes and bubbles the chrome off if it hasnt damaged the outside of rim[meaning re chrome or replace rim] and only at rim lip u can sand lip till smooth and theirs a brown sealer that almost every tire place use and can be put on tire lip which seals stopping any rim lip leak this stuff is use for problems like yours imperfections on rims---doesnt matter where u live the moisture has nowhere to go they will have the moisture in there

My local tire store put semi deep scratches in each spoke (5) and on the lip of the rim (360d)of my factory alloy wheels. i'm worried about structural integrity. should i be ?


Nope, the factory rims are more durable then the after market rims. that is why you can have factory rims repaired and refinished a to the after market rims you can't. If you do a search around your area for rim repair, the average price is $100.00 per rim and see if the tire repair shop would fit the bill for the repair or may be half the price. When replacing the the tire from any aluminum rims, there suppose to use the proper tire removal tool for aluminum rims. The machine has a nylon end so it wouldn't scratch or damage the rim in any way if done right by a trained technician. The finish on my Cobalt SS rims are still blemish free from tire changes from the place i go since tires are all they do.

Thank you for using Fixy and i would have the tire shop fit the bill. That's what shop insurance are for.

Tire Wear


Is the wear spot on the inside treads or on the inside tire wall? Since you put on new/larger rims I would say it is either improper tire inflation or your ball joints are either dying on you or they aren't setup right for that size tire/rim. Also, new rims can throw off your speedo as well.
