I've been looking around for a chart that shows what size tires fit what size rims. IE. if you have a 7.5" rim what is the narrowest and widest tires that can fit? I'd like to see this info for 7", 7.5", 8", 8.5".


The only reason I ask is, I want to buy a rim tire combo soon. I would like to put 225's on the front and 245 or 255 on the back, but don't know what size rims I would need. I'm assuming that a wider rim would way more than a narrow rim, and would like to use the narrowest rims needed for the tire widths that I want.

It varies by the tire. If you go to tirerack.com and look at the spec sheet for different type of tires it will tell you minimum and maximum for each tire.

I'd recomend keeping the same size all around so you can rotate front to back and keep a more neutral handling.

are you in an e30? I heard that 205s are like... the final frontier without alot of work. I want to get some 205's right now just because it seems like it would be neat to have an extra 10...'s (what is that anyhow? Cm's?) that much extra rubber in contact with the ground. Anyhow. Keep me informed.

[edit]
can bottlecaps handle 205's? Never thought to ask.
