What Size Rims Fit My Car?

Friday, May 17, 2013 by Colin .

Deciding what size wheels fit a car isn't a simple process. You must consider details, such as bolt pattern, offset, width and diameter. We have made the process easy by already taking these factors into account. When you shop for wheels by vehicle on our site, you'll be able to see all options that fit. Tire Rack's website only shows sizes we know will safely work on the vehicle. We also let users know important information, including the fitment may be aggressive and may require fender modifications for a proper fit. 

To ensure a match for your car, we measure your vehicle's critical components with sophisticated electronic tools that allows our fitment engineers to create extremely accurate drawings of these parts. We do the same for the wheels that we offer and then use Computer Aided Design (CAD) programs to match the wheels to a vehicle. Using these electronic tools helps us verify the numerous different critical areas before a wheel can be listed for a vehicle. The items we measure or verify include:

  • Bolt Pattern
  • Centerbore
  • Hub Interference
  • Load Capacity
  • Lug Hardware
  • Suspension Components

When viewing wheels in our Upgrade Garage, you can filter options by diameter, price, finish, brand and even weight. Some vehicles come from the factory with a staggered wheel size fitment and our fitment listings will indicate if we have larger rear wheels for your car. Even if your car originally came with larger rear wheels, you can elect to use the same size in the front and rear if you don't want to stay with a staggered set-up. This will allow you to rotate your tires. Also in our Upgrade Garage, you can select the option that allows you to view the wheels on your vehicle.

I just purchased toyo 275x70x18 tires and i want 18x9 rims. i have a 2010 jeep wrangler unlimited sahara
what specifics do i need for my wheels
i see the bolt pattern i believe is
5x5 but what else do i need to know to get the wheels form you?
Monday, July 15, 2013 by colin:
Thanks for your inquiry.

All the wheels listed by your vehicle will fit but some will stick out further than others and require you install a lift. Generally speaking wheels with a negative or zero offset will require a lift. Click on the "important notes" link below the wheels to see if a lift is required.

Best regards,

I have a 97 Honda crv and I was wondering how I know what tires will fit on what rims. I have stock(oem) rims with stock p205/70R/15 tires and I am upgrading to p215/75R/15 will these fit on my rims that are 15's at 6.5 width
Thanks!
Monday, September 9, 2013 by colin:
Hello
Yes, they will fit with your wheels. When looking at tires you can see each one's rim width range by selecting the "specs" tab under the tire picture.

I have a 2013 Subaru Impreza hatchback, came with stock 15" wheels and tires. I'd like to replace the rims and keep my current tires, P195/65 R15. How can I tell if a new 15" rim will work with my existing tires?

Thanks!
Friday, September 13, 2013 by colin:
Hello
The tire size you have will fit a 15" wheel that is 5.5" to 7" wide. All of the 15" wheels we sell for your car will fit.

I just bought a 2013 Chevy Cruze LS. It has stock P215/60R16 tires. I'd like to replace the stock 16" wheels with 16" rims. Would I be able to do so without getting new tires? and what if I wanted to go with 17" rims?

Thanks
Nick
Monday, September 16, 2013 by colin:
Hello

All of the 16" wheels we sell for your vehicle will fit with your current tire size. If you want to change to 17" the tire size would be 225/50-17.

I have a 2008 Toyota Yaris Sedan. I need new wheels and wanted to find out what size wheel will work on my car. Will a 15x6.5 4x100 42 offset work?

Tuesday, September 24, 2013 by colin:
Regarding the Yaris, the wheel specs you referenced are correct. If you look up your car on our website you can see all of the wheels that fit.
Tuesday, September 24, 2013 by colin:
Harry Hughes,
We don't carry any tires except MT in your size. If you want to change your size there may be some other options but we would need to know what size you wanted or the vehicle information.

I have a 2009 cls550 sport pkg and I want to put some new wheels on my car. Currently I have 285/35/18s in the back and 255/40/18 tires in the front. Will 18x9.5 work with the rear and 18x8 for the front?
Tuesday, October 1, 2013 by colin:
Hello.
The rear size will work but your tire size in the front needs at least an 8.5" wide wheel.

Greetings: I have a 1997 Z-28 30th Anniv coupe with stock suspension. Will a 17X9.5" wheel with a 54 Offset and 5x120.65 bolt pattern fit/work on my car?
---Thank you---
Wednesday, October 2, 2013 by colin:
Hello
Your car has a slightly different bolt pattern, 5x4.75 vs 5x4.72 and we don't sell any wheels for your car in that size with a 54 offset. I cannot confirm if they will work on your car.

Hello Tim,

We don't carry any 15" wheels for your vehicle. We have 16" steel wheels starting at $82 each.

my 2010 sti stock tires are 245/40/r18
will aftermarket rims 5x114.3 18x8.5 fit on my stock tires?
Tuesday, April 22, 2014 by Tire Rack Team:
Yes, your stock wheels are also 18x8.5 with a 55mm offset, so they will fit fine.
Tuesday, May 6, 2014 by keith:
I have 255-70-R16 Duelers bought from Tire rack. Will they mount on rims with a width of 8 to 8.5? Same diameter--16 inches. same lug pattern--8 lugs by 6.5 inches.

Yes, they will mount up to 8.5" rim width.

Hello, I have a Saab 9-3 2.0T. Currently it has stock 215-55-r16 on it. I want to up it to 18" rims. Is this possible? if so, what size rim and tire would you recommend?
Tuesday, June 24, 2014 by Tire Rack Team:
You can use 18" wheels and tires on the vehicle. Also, enter your vehicle information on our site, bring up the wheels and filter for 18" options. All the 18" wheel options we list will fit. The tire size we suggest is 235/40R18 or 225/40R18 for the 18x8 size wheels. If you want to use a 18x7.5 wheel size, the tire size would be 225/40R18.

Wednesday, July 2, 2014 by thomas :
i have a 1995 dodge neon (stock rim size 14"x6") i am wanting to put 15x7 rims on it, will this work
Thursday, July 3, 2014 by Tire Rack Team:
We do not list any wheels with those specs for your vehicle, unfortunately we can't confirm if a 17x7 with that backspacing will fit correctly.
Thursday, July 3, 2014 by Tire Rack Team:
Amy, all the 16" wheels we list for your vehicle on our site will fit correctly. You do not have to use an original equipment wheel.
Thursday, July 3, 2014 by Andrew:
Hi Tire Rack team,
I've had trouble with the originally equipped 18" staggered rims on a 2009 MBenz CLS550. The rear 18"x9.5, 275/35/18 seems to have a swaying feeling on the road with brand new tires. Michelin pilot ss wore out in 5k miles. A wheel alignment or balancing were not the issue. Turns out after consultation with a few wheel experts, that the oem offset on the rear rims is not correct. Seems to be an issue with the first year of these particular 5spoke split rims. Causing the premature wear.
Question is: a) have you seen this planing/tracking/swaying issue before ? B) how do I know if I upgrade to 19"
Staggered setup that TireRack has the correct offset in your specs online of Benz made an error at manufacturing time ?

Ps, the issue goes away with a standard 8.5, 245 setup all around with winter shoes on.
Thanks for any input! Great blog!

Looking for rims for a 1996 Toyota Paseo.

Will any 14" rims with 4 lugs fit?
Monday, July 7, 2014 by Tire Rack Team:
Tuesday, July 8, 2014 by Tire Rack Team:
Andrew, I have not heard of an issue with the stock wheels on your vehicle. We have been selling wheels for your vehicle for years so if we did have a bad fitment it would have probably already been removed. In the event that we do sell you something that does not function correctly on a stock vehicle you can return them for a full refund.
Tuesday, July 8, 2014 by Tire Rack Team:
Thomas, the 15x7 wheels with new tires will fit fine on your vehicle.
Thursday, July 10, 2014 by Daniel:
Hello, I was looking at the Ultra Crusher 16x8 for my 04 TRD Tacoma XtraCab. How far will they stick out on the truck if at all? Stock wheels are 265/70/r16. Thanks
