What Size Tires Do I Need?


Recommended Posts

I just purchased a set of 2006 17" GS 10 spoke chrome rims through ebay from OEMRIMS for my 2004 GS300. I was wondering what size tires I should get 225/50-17 standard size for 2006 or 235/45-17 standard size for 2004. The original 16" tires on my car were 225/55-16.

225/55-16=25.74 outside dia. 80.82 circ.

225/50-17=25.86 outside dia. 81.20 circ.

235/45-17=25.33 outside dia. 79.52 circ.

The math says go with the 225/50-17. Does this make sense?

hi i have 06 gs3 with 2255017 on there and working at discount tires for 15 years this is a good size for a good ride if you wanna go with a wider tire and a common size tire is 2354517

thanks

Thank you for the quick response. I will probably go with the 235/45-17 because it is a more common size and my tire dealer will need to order the 225/50-17's. How much will this effect my speedometer and odometer?
