Can I put 235/60R16 on 2008 chevy uplander


The stock wheel and tire is ;
wheel - 17 x 6.5 inches
TIRE - 225 60 17 702 mm diameter

If you wanted a 235 60 17 that would be ok but the tire diameter is larger by a small margin.

If you are reducing wheel size with 16 inch wheels in order to fit the 16 inch tires mentioned in your question you better make sure that the smaller diameter wheel will clear the brakes front and rear.

For a 235 tire the wheel width will need to be 6.5 inches minimum.

So if you go with ...............
wheel- 16 x 6.5 or 16 x 7 inch
TIRE - 235 60 16(as in your question)- 688 mm diameter

Provided the 16 inch wheel clears the brakes that would be OK but that tire is slightly smaller in diameter than stock but within an acceptable margin.

Make sure whatever tire you select that the tire load rating is not less than the stock tire and not less than the tire load rating stipulated by General Motors for that vehicle..

I have a 140/90 back tire on my 94 I think its to wide rubbing belt its a stock bike. Do u agree?


Most likely the back wheel is out of alignment.
With the front wheel held (exactly as possible) straight ahead.
From the back you can sight along the outside edges of the back tire on each side, as high up as you can for better accuracy.
You can use a long straight edge instead,
It should be the same amount wider than the front on both sides, get a friend to hold the bike vertical and another to hold a ruler or tape measure on the side front tire where you can see it.
This is very important to handling as well. The manufacturers marks on the back axle adjustment points are not always accurate.
The front and rear pulleys should also be perfectly aligned.
If the wheel alignment is okay then yes the tire could be too wide.

Will 2008 m3 wheels fit 01 e46 coupe?


Per Tire Rack, for a 2001 330ci you could use 235/35-19 front and 245/35-19 in the rear. Wider tires for the same profile increase the tire's effective diameter(think wheel well gap above the tire) and will change both the odometer and speedometer readings. Additionally, the wider tires may cause rubbing of the fender or other components while turning unless the fenders are flared out.
Caliper clearance should be checked, usually M3 uses bigger calipers than stock. While they may look cool installed, there are several disadvantages to lolwer profile tires such as harsh ride, unforgiving of potholes/speedbumps, wider width is worse for snow application (cause that floating feeling). The 2008 wheel will have the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) .
Both have a bolt pattern of 5-120.

What should the suspension be for a 2008 streetglide for 2 up


Air pressure in the rear tire should be 36-40 psi. Adjustment of any suspension components should be tight enough so that the suspension does not "bottom out" when you hit an average bump.

Dyna Wide Glide Rear Tire


i called a place ( hogpro.com) about wheels for my 07 fxdwg and talked to the guy there. he said a 180 will fit with no problems and a 200 will fit in the swingarm and fender, you just have to center the wheel and deal with the turn signal brackets etc. Does anyone know where i can get a set of rear struts that are just plain with no recess for the turn signals that will bolt on to the stock bike? I am gonna try the 200/55-18 this winter on a 18x 5.5" wheel.
