Tire size calculator

IMO
16= 215/50/16
17= 215/45/17
18= 225/40/18
19= 225/30/19
thanks obz, well thats the innfo i found also but i wasnn't sure if the lowering would effect it at all, i was using tirerack but do you think those sizes still apply if its lowered?

I personally would go with the following:

16=225/50 16
17=225/45 17
18=225/40 18


See a pattern here? I like 225 width, but all are fine on those sizes.

Another way to find tire sizes is by going to discounttire.com or discounttiredirect.com and inputting your car. It will give you different options for different size wheels.

You can also go to 1010tires.com and they have a tire size calculator that you can use...input your stock tire size and a few different sizes to see how much they differ.
