April 25, 2008, Newsletter Issue #86: Plus Size Tires and Rim Size

Tip of the Week

Custom car lovers enjoy trying plus size tires on their machines, but one thing that any newcomer to plus size tires should know; mounting tires designed for one kind of rim size should never be mounted on a differently-sized rim. If the rim says 16", the tire should match. You may be able to get a tire to fit on even a slightly larger rim, but there is a risk of explosive injury that cannot be ignored. Mismatching a tire and wheel is NOT safe.
