Do Not Sell My Personal Information Jump to content

Hi. i'm looking into changing my wheels and tyres. While surfing around trying to get to grips with this science which is new for me I discovered a site with a great lill app that'll help get the correct wheel/size.

I'm editing this post because I found a site that'll allow you to calulate the diff in speed mixing and matching wheels and tyres will make to the speed of the car. I'm also posting my findings. I hope it'll be of interest to someone.

My original size: 225/60/16 speed rating W load 97


255/55/17 diff in diameter 1.42% too slow @60 real 60.9

255/50/17 “ “ 2.14% too fast @60 real 58.7

225/55/17 “ “ 3.2% too fast @60 real 58.1

225/50/17 “ “ 6.4% too fast @60 real 56.2

235/55/17 “ “ 1.6% too fast @60 real 59

245/55/17 “ “ 0.1% too fast @60 real 60

225/50/18 “ “ 2.8% too fast @60 real 58.3

235/50/18 “ “ 1.4% too fast @60 real 59.2

Naturally there will be other size options not listed above.
