What size tyres for my new alloys??? Help please! ?

3 posts in this topic

Hello all,

Getting some new 15" alloys for my fiesta but as im upgrading from 14"s to 15"s i obviously need to change my tyre sizes to comp-ensate and so that my speedo and gearing isnt out. Anyone know the correct size I should have?? Got a 2001 Ford Fiesta Black 1.25

Any help much appreciated......

When i changed my wheels i changed from 14 inch trims to 15 inch alloys.

The 14s were 175/65/R14

The 15s are 195/50/R15

and they were pretty much the same diameter

So i would just look at the size of the tyre so if they are 65s change for 50s, if they are 60 change fore 45s

Remember your putting an inch extra into the middle so you need to take away around half an inch to the tyre as it will take it away top and bottom!
