Tire size question I need some advice.

Ok I found some blizzaks size 235/55/r18. Well my stock tires are 235/50/zr18. Will these tires fit without any clearance issues?

Hey Devil,


Getting ready for some snow I see huh?


I know that feeling all too well .


Luckily, you will have no clearance issues running those tires as the 5MM difference will not effect anything negatively (fitment wise) so you will definitely be fine running them while the weather isn't the best!



Hope this helps and let me know if you have any questions!


-Will

235/50/18s are 27.3" diameter, the 235/55/18s are 28.2"... that's a pretty damn big difference. Going to need to get your tune reburnt or get a tune burnt period to get your speedometer accurate. If they fit...

They're good so far. Not getting a tune until I get a CAI. So I'm fine for now.

Yeah that's about 2 mph difference at 60 mph.
(On the other hand, the speedometer is only accurate to +/-1.5 mph at 60mph.)

AMWill's comment above re: 5MM difference should really be 11.75MM difference. The 5 is the difference between the profile ratio's 50 and 55. Just saying.

Right ^ the number is a % not a certain height for the sidewall. It's based off the width of the tire

Yeah... way to many ppl are clueless on how to read tire size. Being from AM, maybe that explains some of the mismatched wheel and tire combos they sell...
