Increased Tyre Size


Recommended Posts


I have a Celica T Sport 2002 model. Current standard rims are 5 spoke 16" with 205 50 16 tyres

I'm getting different info. on what size tyres to use when i get my new 17" rims.

The way i see it, with a new tyre size of 215 40 17, would be the best suited size. This only gives a difference on the speedo of approx 1 mph at 70 mph, which i would say wouldn,t be an issue !

On a 17" rim someone has advised me to go for a tyre of 225 45 17. This would create more of a rolling variance. It is not as low profile, but may be a bit of a softer ride.

HEEELLLLPPPP..........What size would be best ?

check out www.toyo.co.uk

they have a nice tyre convertor, you put in your tyre size and it tells you what other sizes come close to the original.

just wondering, can you get 18's on the celica?
