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.

For more information on choosing the right wheel for your car, read "Why Shop for Wheels by First Selecting a 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,

Hey, I have a 2001 Acura CL Type-S (stock suspension). The stock fitment is 17x7 215/50-17. The Sport Edition wheels I am looking at are 17x7.5, will they fit my stock tires ?
Thursday, August 8, 2013 by colin:

Yes, a 7.5" wheel will fit with your tire size.
Monday, August 12, 2013 by Mike:
Will an 18MB 275-65-R18 off a 2008 Sahara, fit on a 1999 wrangler with a 2in lift?
Monday, August 12, 2013 by colin:
Hello. Yes, a 275/65-18 should work on the 1999 wrangler with the 2" lift.
Wednesday, August 21, 2013 by Sukie Gill:
I have 235/65/18's - will they fit a 18*8 and/or 18*8.5 etc
Wednesday, August 21, 2013 by colin:
That tire size will fit both a 8" and 8.5" wide wheel
Friday, August 23, 2013 by Tom:
I have a 2006 Mazda 6s with 18" rims.
I want to put 17" rims on for winter to raise the profile. Will they fit?
Friday, August 23, 2013 by colin:
Yes, 17" wheels will work well on the mazda 6s.
Tuesday, September 3, 2013 by John:
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
Monday, September 9, 2013 by colin:
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.
Tuesday, September 10, 2013 by Frank:
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?

Friday, September 13, 2013 by colin:
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.
Saturday, September 14, 2013 by Nick:
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?

Monday, September 16, 2013 by colin:

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 Harry Hughes:
I have 285/75 R18 mt what I would like to have is ht tires are there a set that will work with the rims
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.
Sunday, September 29, 2013 by Rick:
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:
The rear size will work but your tire size in the front needs at least an 8.5" wide wheel.
Wednesday, October 2, 2013 by Mark Jonas:
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:
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.
Wednesday, October 23, 2013 by Tim:
Hello, I want to create a full-size spare for my 2000 Nissan Frontier 2WD w/ stock 215/65R15. What size "steelie" rim would be best for this tire? Thanks!
Wednesday, October 23, 2013 by colin:
Hello Tim,

We don't carry any 15" wheels for your vehicle. We have 16" steel wheels starting at $82 each.
Wednesday, November 20, 2013 by ashley:
i have 17 in tires how do i know what size rims I need
Thursday, November 21, 2013 by Hello Ashley:
I would suggest going on our website, select "wheels" then enter your vehicle information. You will then be able to see all of the 17" rims that will fit.

I have 18x9 wheels and am looking at getting tires that say the max rim width is 8.5. Can i still use these without issue or do I have to find a different tire? Have read mixed reviews on this subject online.
Monday, April 21, 2014 by sean:
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.
Thursday, May 8, 2014 by Tire Rack Team:
Yes, they will mount up to 8.5" rim width.
Monday, June 23, 2014 by Greg:
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.
Sunday, June 29, 2014 by Amy Gamble:
I need to replace the 16" 5 lug wheel on a 2002 PT Cruiser. Does the wheel have to be a PT Cruiser wheel or will any 16" 5 lug wheel work?

Will 17x7 rims with 5.5" backspacing fit my 1999 ford ranger 2wd?
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
Thursday, July 17, 2014 by Sam:
I am looking for winter tires, and the rubber I am looking for is the size I need. They are typical steel rims from a honda civic. Will the bolt pattern fit my chevrolet cavalier?
Monday, July 28, 2014 by Tom:
Can anyone help with what wheels can I interchange with on my 1993 F-150, I have been told some Jeep wheels will fit.
Wednesday, July 30, 2014 by Jack:
I have a 1996 Mercury Grand Marquis. I've found that there were both 16 and 15 inch tire options for that year. Can I use either size rim? Currently I am running 215/75R15, but they have a large amount of extra tread for country use. Should I stick with a 15" rim? Or could I run a 16" rim? I am looking to buy a set of winter tires.
Thursday, August 7, 2014 by Tire Rack Team:
Yes, you can use either size rim. For winter, you would be better off with the 15" wheel. The tire size we suggest for 16" is wider and won't be as affective on snow. lso, the 15" size with the larger sidewall profile will help protect the wheels if you hit a pothole.
Friday, August 22, 2014 by roid:
i have 2013 honda civic.. is 18 inches rims will be to fit? thanks
Tuesday, August 26, 2014 by Tire Rack Team:
Rold, this size can fit a 2013 Honda Civic and is most commonly used with a 225/40R18 tire size. -- Marshall@tirerack.com
Monday, September 1, 2014 by gavin loree:
I have a lowered Volvo 245 and i was wondering if i could fit a nine inch wide wheel with a 205 tire on it?
Wednesday, September 3, 2014 by Tire Rack Team:
Gavin, a 205 width tire would be considerably too narrow to fit on a 9" wide wheel. Tires in this size are better suited to 7" wide wheels. Additionally, a 9" wide wheel is much too aggressive to fit properly on your model Volvo. Doing such would likely result in rubbing issues even on a factory ride height vehicle.
Sunday, September 7, 2014 by Tavis:
I have a 2007 Acura TSX... It comes stock with 17 inch rims, 7 width. If I upgrade to 18, 7.5 width. will it mess up my suspension or put to much extra strain on the car ? I don't want to mess anything up.
Tuesday, September 9, 2014 by Tire Rack Team:
Tavis, this set-up should work fine and should be paired with a 225/40R18 tire size for best results. -- marshall@tirerack.com
Thursday, September 11, 2014 by Joseph Luna:
I have a 01 Mercury Grand Marquis and the stock rims are 16x7 but I want to upgrand to an 18x8 but I not sure if it will work and if it does what size tire would I put on it to fit my car without having to lift it
Friday, September 12, 2014 by Tire Rack Team:
Joseph, currently we do not offer any 18" fitments for the Grand Marquis. The largest size we can guarantee is a 245/50R17.
Thursday, October 2, 2014 by Matt :
Hey I have a set of stock tires on a chevy extended cab. 265/65/r18. I want to upgrade it but without having to get a lift kit. (I wouldn't mind getting a leveling kit if needed) what is the biggest set I can upgrade to,,what do you recommend ??

Friday, October 3, 2014 by kevin :
I just bought a set of 33in tires. They are 12.5 in width. What width rim would I need? Would a 8 inch width rim fit these tires?
Sunday, October 5, 2014 by Adam:
I have 185 70 r15 on my dads cavalier I was wondering if 215 70 r15 rims and tires will fit? Or will it be to wide and hit when turning. Also they are winter tires
Monday, October 6, 2014 by Tire Rack Team:
Kevin, most 33x12.50 tires will require a rim width of 8.50-11" and are considered optimal on a 10" wide wheel.
Monday, October 6, 2014 by Tire Rack Team:
Nate, that size is much too large for a Cavalier and likely will not fit without rubbing issues.
Monday, October 6, 2014 by Tire Rack Team:
Matt, what year is your Chevy truck?

Hi guys, great job. I was looking for a professional opinion on my 2014 nissan maxima. I'm wondering if on just lowering springs if I can go 19x9.5 in front and 19x10.5 in the rear. I know my original 19s are x8 with a +50 offset I believe. What would be a good offset for my car as well. I don't mind a little poke but nothing to crazy :-)
Monday, October 13, 2014 by Tire Rack Team:
Adam, 215/70/15 is too large to fit properly on a Cavalier. It will likely cause severe rubbing issues.
Saturday, November 15, 2014 by johnnie:
Will 205/70r15 tires fit on my 99 honda civic sedan?
Thursday, November 20, 2014 by Jack:
Hi, I just purchased a 2014 Sonata 2.0T with 17' factory rims. I am looking to upgrade to a factory 18' rim with a lower profile tire. Will doing so, alter the suspension, computer reading, etc? Thanks, Jack
Thursday, November 20, 2014 by Tire Rack Team:
Johnnie, these tires are a bit large and would not be a gauranteed fitment on a 1999 Honda Civic.
Saturday, November 22, 2014 by Dan:
Would 235/45R17 tires be able to fit a 18x8.5 rim? Normal size for the rim is 245/40R18. Thanks
Monday, November 24, 2014 by willie:
I have a lexus 2004 es330 I want to put 18x8.5 rims with a 50 offset lexus wheel. Will it fit all the way around?
Monday, November 24, 2014 by Tire Rack Team:
Jack, Switching to 18" or larger wheels will not alter the readings received by the vehicle's sensors as long as an appropriately shorter tire is selected as a fitment. Using properly sized tires, the vehicle should never notice the difference.
Tuesday, November 25, 2014 by Tire Rack Team:
Dan, 17" tires will not mount on an 18" wheel regardless of their width or sidewall dimensions.
Wednesday, November 26, 2014 by Patti:
I have Honda CRV LX 2013 it has 16" tired .
Can I mount a 17" tire or do I need new rims to fit this car?

i have a 1996 Mazda B3000 (2wd, base model). Stock rims are 14 inches. I want to know if I can increae the rim size (and tires to go with bigger rims) and if so how high can I go?
Monday, December 1, 2014 by Tire Rack Team:
Willie, Using such a wide and high offset wheel would likely cause interference with the strut. As such, we do not recommend using a wheel in these dimensions on your ES330.

I have a 2008 Jeep Patriot with tire size 205/70/16. I want to buy new rims and found 16" rims. Will they fit?
Tuesday, December 30, 2014 by Tire Rack Team:
Bernie, You should not need to change the size of your tires in an effort to reduce road noise. Several good options exist in the factory size of 235/50R18. A few of these options are the Continental PureContact with EcoPlus Technology and the Pirelli Cinturato P7 All Season Plus: http://www.tirerack.com/tires/surveyresults/surveydisplay.jsp?type=GTAS&affiliate=BF7
Monday, January 5, 2015 by Tire Rack Team:
Ryan, 16" and 17" size wheels would work fine on the Civic. With those wheels you would want to run 205/50R16 or 205/45R17 size tires respectively. -- marshall@tirerack.com

I have a 1996 nissan maxima with 215/65/15 tires i want to get new rims and they are 15x6.5 would they work on my car and if they do what size tires would help with gas mileage

Tuesday, January 6, 2015 by Michael:
I have a '03 Chevy Cavalier Base Coupe with 17" rims. Will 195 /70 R14 91T SL BSW tires fit?
Thursday, January 8, 2015 by Tire Rack Team:
James, 215/65R15 tires will fit on a 6.5" wide wheel but are slightly big for the car. We suggest a 205/65R15 which will fit better and also improve economy. -- marshall@tirerack.com
Thursday, January 8, 2015 by Tire Rack Team:
Michael, 14" tires will not mount to 17" wheels. That size is appropriate for 14" wheels only.

Tuesday, January 13, 2015 by Duke:
2012 CR-V EX-L 2WD, want to +1 to 18" wheels, thinking of 18x8.5". What's the widest tire that will fit this w/o issue? I'm sure 235/55R18 will be fine, how about 245/55R18 though? A sample wheel I saw on your site is Enkei PF01 18x8.5" w/ 48mm offset, is this proper offset? A Google search revealed a 40-55mm offset range for this vehicle. Won't go wider than 245, but for curiosity do let me know if 255/50R18 would work.
Wednesday, January 14, 2015 by Tire Rack Team:
Brandon, Sizes between 15-19" can fit on the Civic as long as a proper tire size is used. For options, search by vehicle on our website. http://www.tirerack.com/wheels/wtpack.jsp?camefrom=wtpack&affiliate=BF7
Friday, January 16, 2015 by Tire Rack Team:
Duke, 255/50R18 is an extremely rare tire size that is also a bit shorter than recommended. A 255/55/18 tends to be a better option. -- marshall@tirerack.com

New to cars and would like to know some answers. If i purchase some 17x9 rims, could i still use my stock 06 si tires to fit the rims?
Monday, January 19, 2015 by Khanh:
My stock are 225/65/17. Got another set of rims: 18" 7.5J. Thinking of puting 245/55/18 on this set ... would 245 fit my 7.5 width wheels?

Tuesday, January 20, 2015 by Tire Rack Team:
Johnny, A 17x9 wheel on the Civic Si requires the use of a 235/40/17 size tire. The factory tires are too narrow to reuse. -- marshall@tirerack.com
Wednesday, January 21, 2015 by aaron:
I have a 2001 hyundai elantra. What's the highest size rim that will fit
Thursday, January 22, 2015 by Tire Rack Team:
Khanh, A 245/55/18 should work well on a 7.5" wide wheel.
