What's my tire size?

Tuesday, February 16, 2010 by Tim Joines
When searching for tires for your car or tires for your truck we offer several ways to find the best tires. 

I had a question from our recent survey that is an example of the different ways to search for tires. The customer was concerned that he saw fewer tires when he searched for tires by vehicle for his 2003 Chevy Trailblazer than when he searched by the tire size 245/75R16.

2003 Chevrolet TrailBlazer with Chrome 20X8.5 Granite Alloy GX1 custom rims

The difference is the size tire returned in the search results. We show the Original Equipment size tires when searching for tires by vehicle. The Original Equipment tire size is 245/70R16 for the 2003 Chevy Trailblazer.

The tire manufacturers we represent offer 48 tire models in size 245/70R16 but they offer 92 in size 245/75R16.

To help ensure we only recommend tires that meet the vehicle's capabilities we do only show tires that meet the selected vehicle's minimum load and speed rating requirements. 

All of the tires in size 245/70R16 meet the minimum standards for the 2003 Chevy Trailblazer.

An example of a limited list of tires is for a ¾-ton Silverado pick-up. The results will only show tires that are E-load rated or higher which reduces the list to 33 tires for 245/75 16.

It is helpful to verify the tire size is what you are searching for on our site by vehicle and if searching by size that the tire is correct for your vehicle.

We have a team of specialists to review every order and if the size listed does not match the vehicle we will contact you to make sure the size will work for your needs.

As always, if you ever have a question you can give one of our sales specialists a quick call for advice.
