Not sure what size tires you need for your new wheels?

Updated: May 12, 2022

What size tire should I be buying for my new wheels? Each tire has a specific rim width range on which the tire can be mounted. Failure to follow rim width recommendations may result in poor tire performance or possible wheel and/or tire failure. Choosing a wheel near the middle of the range will give a balance between ride quality and handling. A wider wheel will improve handling at the expense of ride quality, while a narrower wheel will improve ride quality at the expense of handling. Consider these compromises when selecting wheels.

Most of the tires we sell display a recommended rim width or you can simply email or call us.
