What is the widest tire I can fit on my stock 16" wheels on my 2001 base?

Re: widest tire for stock wheel

Since you hadn't even attempted to search, it's a wonder we're being so helpful. However, I offer you the same comment I offer everybody else on the subject

Check the wheel and tyre sizes thread in the Stance forum. It is a comprehensive dataset put together from nothing other than 12 years of people modifying 5th gen Preludes. Also keep in mind that a wider tyre may reduce choice. I decided I wanted 225 tyres for my wheels, but for the profile the only available tyre in that size was a korean manufactured tyre that I couldn't even pronounce the name of. So I went with a more sedate 205 made by Bridgestone, which was a far better tyre anyway

Re: widest tire for stock wheel

Width isn't everything. Yes a better contact patch always helps but you are better off with a better tire with a slimmer contact patch than a crappy tire with a wide contact patch. That's basically what Brash22 said.

Why exactly do you want widder tires anyway? going much widder than a 225 is going to look kind of dumb and won't fit the wheel right.

Re: widest tire for stock wheel

Wider tires mean a little less road rash if you can't park right!

But seriously, unless you're gonna go rock-crawling, you're not gonna get much of a benefit from it.

Re: widest tire for stock wheel

Purchased 225 BF Goodrich TA's, could not drive out of the parking lot. All four tires rubbed. Dropped back to 215R55-16. Really fill the wheel well, meaty! They will still rub slightly front and back if you really hit a large bump. The Rear will rub if you load the trunk down and roll over moderate bump. Rear Tabs will have to be filed down or cut off with dremel tool. My Prelude has stock suspension.
