Can I replace my tires with a different size?
Once you choose a tire size for your vehicle, you’ll want to stick with that size when you buy replacements. The reason for this is that a differently sized tire can confuse your speedometer and even cause damage to your vehicle’s anti-lock braking systems and stability system calibrations.
What are my stock tire size?
Find the information in your vehicle owner’s manual in the glove compartment or on the tire information sticker on your driver’s side door. Usually those elements contain all the information related to your tire size and specifications as well as the appropriate tire pressure.
Does it matter what size tire you put on your car?
The replacement tire should have an overall diameter that closely matches the original rubber to ensure that the speedometer, odometer, and overall vehicle dynamics aren’t affected. The replacement tires should have the same load capacity or higher to ensure they are rated to carry the same weight.
