Re: Wheel Size Calculator / Rim Weights

Also, decreasing OD will increase engine rpm at a given speed, and vice versa.

BTW: couldn't edit my previous post - is there some trick i'm missing?

Re: Wheel Size Calculator / Rim Weights

A larger OD would increase speed to a point, but the added weight of the tire is going to make the engine work harder to spin it up, reducing your acceleration, and also having a negative effect on top speed.

As for 40/17's v. 45/19's.. that's mostly true, but you have to take the whole tire size into consideration to get the outside diameter. For instance, a 225/40R17 and a 145/45R19 are only 0.2% off -- but your statement is mostly true, as those who upgrade to larger rims usually go same-or-wider, not narrower.

As for editing posts.. it's a forum bug. Sometimes some users can't -- the problem is known, but the solution still evades the admins.

I have a set of 245/45/18's on the rear of my Sedan.
Im going to get the Eibach Pro Kit to drop it one inch BUT..before I do that Im going to have to put some 225/45/18's or I will rub all over.

I was also considering keeping my setup and just rolling the lip on the fender.......pondering setup still.

Re: Wheel Size Calculator / Rim Weights

I got tired of continually checking different tire sizes using the miata calculator. So i made an excel spreadsheet of all the different sizes of tires and rims and compared it to the original size on the sedan. I figured some of you out there might find this useful.

Tires with diameter within 1% of the original size are colored green. Those within 3% are colored yellow.

<a href=http://www.people.cornell.edu/pages/apd6/TireSizeComparison.html> Tire Size Comparison </a>


Also, if you want to download the spreadsheet to change the initial value, here it is:

<a href=http://www.people.cornell.edu/pages/apd6/TireSizeComparison.xls> Tire Size Comparison SpreadSheet </a>

It essentially tells you the useful tire/rim sizes for a particular vehicle given the original tire sizes.

Enjoy!

Re: Wheel Size Calculator / Rim Weights

Anyone know the rim weights for the 18" wheels or where I can find that info?

Go back to the first post in this thread and pay attention to the available links. Either that, or look for the manufacturer's website, especially if it's a fairly new rim.

Re: Wheel Size Calculator / Rim Weights

OK, I'm not the smartest guy in the world, as far as how to interpret this chart. If I want to put an all season tires on the front of my coupe with the 18 inch package, what size can I go to without rubbing, or messing up any of the computer stuff? Currently it is the 225/45/18, and I want to find a size that will fit in a Mich Pilot A/S. They make it for the OEM rear size, but not the front. Thanks for the help!

Re: Wheel Size Calculator / Rim Weights

I made a spreadsheet to show the overall tire diameters and profile heights for 19/20" tires in comparison to the stock diameter of the coupe. Hope it's useful.

Re: Wheel Size Calculator / Rim Weights

I have the stock 18" wheels with 225/45 front and 245/45 rear. I would like to keep the stock 18" x 8" but put as wide a tire as I can on the stock 18" x 8", will 265/45 on rear and move the current rear 245/45 to the front work?
Will the stock 18" wheels hold the 265's or will they ballon out?

Re: Wheel Size Calculator / Rim Weights

Thanks for all the replys, from the advice it sounds like the safest sizes are 245/40/18 & 255/40/18.
The only other question is should I go with 255/40 or 255/45 in the rear, does the varience from front and rear add together?
Meaning 245/40 show (-1%) and 255/45 (1.3%) Totaling 2.3% between.
Although just adding the mm is appear the 245/40 & 255/40 are closer. Example: stock 225/45= 101 1/4 mm sidewall & 245/45=110 1/4 sidewall, a 9 mm difference.
If I go with 245/40= 98 mm sidewall and 255/40= 102 mm sidewall, a 5 mm difference. But if I go with 245/40= 98 mm sidewall and 255/45= 114 3/4 mm sidewall, a 16 3/4 mm difference ( way off stock).
If I did this correctly it appear 245/40 & 255/40 are my best options.

Can you repost the spreadsheets? I couldn't down load or view them.

Thanks.
