Tire Size Question.

Postby MrMcQuacker » Tue Apr 16, 2013 4:59 am

Hey guys, So to start I apologize if I am on the wrong page to be posting this.
My question was. In regards to the Tire size meeting close to the total Circumference of the stock set up. The stock is 74.4", on 205/60/14. Now what I want to run are 205/16" and I am not sure as for the tread size. If I go 50 it will be 75.7". And if I go 45 it will be 73" So to sum it up a little 205/50/16 will get me 74.4" and 205/45/16 will give me 73". My question is It ok to be a little over? Id like to run 50 if possible but if not that's fine ill run 45, if that is even ok. So please let me know what you guys think.

I think its fine to be a bit over/under in relations to the original tire height. That's mainly going to affect your speedometer accuracy and how the car accelerates and such. The more important thing is for the front and rear tire heights to be the same so that they are turning at the same speed. HTH..
