Do tires have to be exact match?
For optimal safety and performance, Continental recommends fitting the same tires to every wheel position on your car, so drivers should have the same brand, size, tread pattern, load index, and speed rating on the front and rear tires.
Does it matter if one tire is different size?
Mismatched wheels will fit each tire differently causing uneven wear and tear. In addition, different sized wheels can lead to different sized tires which can be detrimental to your vehicle. The best case scenario is to buy the same original equipment wheels that came on your vehicle.
Can I use 65 tires instead of 60?
Re: Tire aspect ratio – problems if change from 60 to 65? it is the overall diameter that is of concern, not just the aspect ratio. the 205/65/15 will be over 3% bigger than 205/60/15, therefore not recommended. stick with the stock size or go with 195/65/15 if you like.
Is it OK to have one tire different?
Reasons to Avoid Replacing Only One Tire Replacing one tire at a time can present challenges down the road since the one tire will have a different tread depth and thus different accelerating, braking, and cornering abilities than all of the others.
Can I use 215 tires instead of 225?
Yes, you can. But only if the rims on your car can accommodate tires that are 10-20 millimeters wider. Bear in mind that wider wheels require more fuel due to their increased rolling resistance. Again, wider tires are more costly than narrower ones because they need more rubber during construction.
Is it OK to have 2 different size tires?
Having two different-sized tires on the same axle is generally not a good thing. If the diameter of the two tires is close, then the rolling radius is about the same, so in the short term, you probably won’t have any damage, but long term, you run the risk of messing up your car’s differential.
Are 60 or 70 tires wider?

What is the difference between a 65 and 70 tire?
The series number in a tire-numbering system refers to the aspect ratio of the tire’s sidewall height to its width. A series 65 tire’s height is 65 percent of its width, a series 70 tire’s height is 70 percent of its width and so on. These differences in height affect both performance and safety issues while driving.
What is the difference between 225 and 235 tire size?
If you have a smaller car and want to save on gas, you’ll want a 225. If you have a larger vehicle and need more stability, you’ll want a 235.
Can I use wider tires on my car?
As a general rule of thumb, it’s safe to fit a tire up to 20 millimeters wider than stock on the original rim. The actual width of the tire will vary depending on the width of the rim: The tire will expand 5 millimeters for every half inch (12.5 millimeters) increase in rim width.
What size tires are interchangeable?
…calculations and inflation pressure tables. So if Euro-metric and P-metric tires have the same numeric size, the same tire performance category and the same speed rating, the two are considered equivalent and interchangeable if used in axle pairs or sets of four. Simply continue to follow your…
Are car tire sizes interchangeable?
Close tire sizes interchangeable Um, no. These tyres are not interchangeable, no. For a start, they require different sized wheels, which brings up completely different questions: 1: Can a 15″ wheel work on your car? There is no way to know, unless you tell us what car it is.
