Tires

Got used rims and 2 of them had tires but no tread left. Guy had smoked em when he got new ones. The tires are 255/55 r16. Is there a range of sizes that would fit the rims or would i have to find this exact tire size? Thanks

Re: Tires

a 245 or 265 etc wont be much difference. Its only 10mm and thats 5mm per side~

keep in mind 25.4mm = 1 inch for reference.

remember to do the math correctly to get the correct sidewall, the sidewall (second) number is a percentage of height based on the width

255 * .55(notice the decimal) = X where X is the height of the sidewall

Re: Tires

Well if they are the stock 16's from another v6 mustang then they are 7.75" wide and the best fitting tire will be 225/55/16, but you might be able to get away with a 215.
