Can I replace stock 215/55R16 tires with 215/60R16 tires


The stock tire has a diameter of 25.3" the other tire has a diameter of 26.2"

While I recommend not deviating from the stock tire size 1" should not make that much of a difference.

Remember, the suspension, brakes, abs, traction control, and general safety are all designed to be most beneficial using the stock tire size. Using a different size tire can affect all of these things.

My 2005 infinity has all of a sudden thrown me 3 different lights. Service engine soon, vdc off, and slip. I recently had a flat and got a used tire put on. The car stalls to start and is now cutting off...


Your tire sensors are sensing different size tires./ Your tires are rotating at different speeds because of the size difference. put the same tires on the front axle if front wheel drive. and the same tires on the rear if rear wheel drive. be sure to match tire pressure.

What is the difference between tire size 255/70 and 265/70


Hello Projocs03,

Tires are typically measured tire width (sidewall)/tire ride height/wheel size. The differences of the two tire sizes you published are .4 of an inch difference in width/sidewall. And about .55 in over all diameter which would impact you revs per rotation. Depending on your wheel size.

Attached is a comparison of the two given the variable of 17" rim.

I added the above link so you can research further or change any variables you need to know. However, the most important thing to understand is the impact of your speedometer. Different sizes will have different impacts. For example going to a bigger tire will show a slower speed on your spedo that your traveling.

Good luck

What size can I go up from stock tire size for 04 envoy with minimal issues?


The major problem with increasing tire size on the Envoy is at the front wheel assembly. The upper ball joint is very close to the tire, even with standard size tires. Go to www.trailvoy.com and do a search on tire size, I believe someone posted a chart of tire sizes for fit with different years of Envoy and Trailblazer.

Can you run different size tires on the front than back of 1989 audi 200 quattro


under no circumstances. these vehicles are designed to run in sync with the calibrated tire size, different tire sizes will cause damage to the all wheel drive system. further, it is also recommended that you run the same tire model on all 4 corners as well, so as to provide equal readings. 2 different tire manufacturers, even if they are the exact same size, will have slightly different dimensions.

What size tires do I put on Pontiac Grand am?


the stock rims should be 16" making the tire size 205/55/16. let me know if you have a different rim size. you can look at the tire size on the tire sidewall and the last number is going to be your rim size. if it's a 15' rim the tires are 195/65/15 and finally for 14" rims the tire size is 195/70/14. hope this helps.

Auto 4 wd on 2003 trailblazier is not cutting off.


Hi there... The different size is tires could be causing you problem. The other thing is that if you are using your 4x4 with the two different sized tires, you are causing more damage than you think. The reason is that with two different sized tires, your axles are rotating at different speeds. This is ok in 2wd becuse there is no power transfer to the fronts but once you engage the 4wd, now you have power to the fronts and rears and could damage the differentials.

2000 Ford Explorer AWD purchased with different size tires


It is true that driving with different size tires can damage the transfer case, depending on how long it was driven like that. But--- even if the tires are the same size it can cause this. if the tires are worn and two tires are new the circumference of the tires must not be more than 1/2 inch difference from each other, take a tape measure and put it around the tire in the center and measure the difference of each tire
