Hi
Its best to stick with standard sizes as Yamaha put a lot of research into finding the best tyre sizes for each model

What size tyres camaro 1997 3800rs v6


The wheels could have been changed on the car from the standard original factory set and hence the tyre size may not be the standard factory original size.
The size of the tyres on the vehicle now is moulded into the side wall of the tyres and is easy to read.
Check all 4 tyres because larger size tyres may have been fitted as a pair to the rear.

The size might read - for example 245 45 18 or 235 45 17 (there are a huge number of sizes for each model of tyre).

The first 3 numbers are the width of the tyres in mm eg 225 mmm or 235 mm and so on. The second 2 numbers are the tyre profile size or ratio (which can be 70 65 60 55 50 45 40 and so on. The third number is the wheel diameter size. If you have 18 inch wheels on the car the tyres will read 18 or if they are 17 inch wheels the tyres will read 17 and so on.

I have one Yamaha r15 can i swap wheels from r125 because it is bigger than r15


Unfortunately the you are constricted by the width of the swingarm.

The tyre size for the R15 is the optimum tyre size for performance although it does not look as good as chunky tires.

Isn't performance more important than looks anyway though?

Short answer to your question... No, this can not be done.

Can we change the size of rear tyre?


The tyre size is governed by the rim width and the space available in the wishbone. I would measure the space available for the tyres width right up inside the wishbone along with the tyre size that you have at present.
The tyre can be oversized but watch out for slipping on the rim of the wheel!
Consult a Yamaha Workshop for specialist tyre sizes and compounds. Pirelli make some super sticky tyres alowing for excellent high speed cornering!

I wanna change the rear tyre of my R15... I am planning to put lil bigger tyre. suggest me the tyre size which will look good.. My friend had put MRF zapper 120/80 which looked little odd. Mechanics have...


You are governed by safety. The hub width will determine the maximum width and type of tyre as will the width of the rear suspension/wishbone.
Consult a qualified tyre fitter for accurate sizes. Don't forget your speedometer will no longer be accurate!
