tyre sizes on 19's

Recommended Posts

What tyre sizes should a standard car running 19's have???


Is a 55 tyre wall ok?


Hi mate,


as a rule of thumb, providing you're keeping the same tyre widths, ie 225 front and 245 rear, you go down one profile every time you go up one inch, ie from 245-50-16 to 245-45-17 to 245-40-18 etc. As Clarkey says though that'll change if you're going wider. See here for some great advice - http://www.carbibles.com/tyre_bible.html


The back will swallow huge tyres, depending on the offset, but always remember to allow a bit of play because the rear wheels do steer, unless you've disabled your hicas obviously.
