Noob tire question

Hi guys,

I got a flat lately, my tires were 205/55/16, the garage ordered those at 205/50/16 instead and put them in the front. So right now, I have 205/50/16 in the front and 205/55/16 in the back...Would it be in issue?


Thanks

Re: Noob tire question

won't be any issues. There's a lot of people who run different offset tires. I had some 215/40r17 on the front and 215/45r17 in the rears for awhile with no issues at all

Ok thanks. Shouldn't matter if it's the same psi for all 4 tires as well?

Re: Noob tire question

do you have aftermarket or stock wheels on right now? cause on the driver's side door jam is a tire plackard that has all the info for the tires. size, inflation amount, etc.. but if you have aftermarket then it isn't much good to you. refer to that though to see if there are differences between the front and rear PSI

Re: Noob tire question

Just read the tire, and fill it 5 less than max pressure. The info you want is on the tire's sidewall. here's a link.

Re: Noob tire question

so long as you keep the same size tires on the same "axles" all is well. from a 55 to a 50 series you're not losing that much height, but dimensions can be a pretty wide range between manufacturers

Re: Noob tire question

tire sizes can be changed as long as the dont exceed the wheels limit and cause a rubbing. PSI will vary based on your needs stay around 30 if you put too little you will have excessive wear on the shoulders too much and you will increase wear on the middle the PSI on the sidewall will show you max air pressure under the maximum load such as weight so try to stay away from that the side wall PSI is the limit of the tire. Front to back tire sizes will not harm your vehicle just try to stay away from two different sizes on the same axle. Hope this helps I answer these questions at work all day.
