Stupid Tire Question Of The Day

Recommended Posts

you are right

the rim diameter and the inside bead diameter of the rim have to match

or else it will not seat to hold the air in

Thanks, but I could go wider though right? I'm gonna have to get new tires in a few thousand miles and I think the car would look a little better with bigger/wider tires if possible.

going up one ratio is usually no problem

if it says 215/60 16 then go to a 225/55 16

just ask the tire shop for a best fit

on sizes

that is only an example for a width change

Years ago a friend of mine had a 70 something 429 Ford. He put new tires on it and had one hell of a time getting one tire off. It was a 14" tire mounted on a 15" rim :o .
