## How can you tell what size tires you have?

The two-digit number after the slash mark in a tire size is the aspect ratio. For example, in a size P215/65 R15 tire, the 65 means that the height is equal to 65% of the tire’s width. The bigger the aspect ratio, the bigger the tire’s sidewall will be.

## What do the 3 numbers mean on tire size?

B: TIRE WIDTH The three -digit number following the letter is the tire’s width (from side to side, looking at the tire head on) in millimeters. It’s the height of the sidewall measured from wheel rim to top of the tread, expressed as a percentage of tire width. In other words, it’s sidewall height divided by tire width.

## Can I use 225 65R17 instead of 235 60R17?

Both fit 17 inch rims, so one obstacle is out of the way. 235 / 65R17 has a sidewall height of 153 millimeters (65% of 235 mm), while 225 / 60R17 has a sidewall height of 135 mm (60% of 225 mm). You are reducing sidewall height by 18 mm (about 3/4″), so your car will be lower by this amount.

## Can I use 235 65R17 instead of 225 65R17?

Yes. For safety reasons be sure that the replacement tires are rated for both load and speed at or above the specifications for your Vehicle. Be sure to replace the tires in pairs on either the front or rear axles. Failure to do so could cause problems.

## Can you put different width tires on same rim?

Wheels and tires are not interchangeable words. Tires are a part of the wheel setup. For instance, your vehicle has a set size of rims, but you can buy different sizes of tires to fit those rims, as long as the middle of the tires is the correct size.
