Each time I've priced out tyres in the past the Toyo's and F1's are normally a fairly comparative price, F1's usually a tiny bit more.

The standard 16" tyre size is 225x50/16 all round, or 245x45/16 on the rear for some.

Using the wrong size, such as 225x45/16 will affect final drive ratios and speedo accuracy etc.

Most of the sizes quoted are incorrect, so probably pay to check before going ahead. A guide I use is to try and get the circumference within 1% of stock. Here is my view of ideal sizes for each rim size:

225x50/16 (standard)
245x45/16 (-0.7%)
245x40/17 (-0.6%)
255x35/18 (+0.7%)

My view is also to try and fit the same size all round for a better balance. The reason a lot of people get smaller front/larger rear is either to reduce cost, or there is more room for bigger tyres at the rear. I have slightly smaller front for space reasons. Next set will be same all round for better turn in and braking than smaller front.

Here are my calculations for variance to the standard 225x50/16:

Width Profile RIM Height Variance Circumference
225 50 16 631.4 1984 (standard)
225 45 16 608.9 -3.6% 1913
245 45 16 626.9 -0.7% 1969
235 45 17 643.3 1.9% 2021
245 40 17 627.8 -0.6% 1972
225 45 18 659.7 4.5% 2073
245 45 18 677.7 7.3% 2129
255 35 18 635.7 0.7% 1997
235 40 18 645.2 2.2% 2027

N.B Variance figure is on circumference and will therefor reflect change to drive ratio and speedo error.

Also please excuse the table - this forum does not format them very well.

Cheers,

Mad Mike.

New tyre = 6mm tread (more or less depending on tyre) worn tyre = 1.5mm tread. This will have an effect on the speedo also, as will tyre pressures (in more extreme cases).

1% is a harsh standard there Mike Shocked

I agree with your tyre wear explanation and this will account for 1.4% variance in circumference. So any initial tyre size variance will be on top of this. How much is variance is OK? Interesting discussion....

I was going to have a read of the rules but ran out of time Rolling Eyes work to do and all that Laughing Maybe I will go search for it now.

AA says the tire circumference must remain unchanged Laughing damn time for me to go buy tires as they have worn a tiny bit and therefore have changed Rolling Eyes
