Cool Breeze I'll make you a deal on 4 265/70/17 Goodyear Wranglers that I just had replaced this morning (4,000 miles on them) I went to 285/70/17 with new rims.

GulfCoast1102 You can't put an 18" tire on a 17" rim. That much surely won't fit. As for height, consider this...

The 265 70 17s that you have now measure out as follows...

The 265 is in millimeters, and it is the width of the tire, or about 10.4 inches wide
The 70 refers to height about the rim as a percentage of width. 70% * 265 = 185.5 mm. Double this value (top and bottom side of the rim), convert to inch, and add the rim height in inches to it, and you've got you're overall height. (185.5 * 2) = 371 mm, which is about 14.6", plus 17" rim height for a total of 31.6" tall. Just as a quick recap, your current tire/wheel is about 10.4" wide and 31.6" tall.

The tires you're looking at are about 10.8" wide and about 32" tall.

Hope this clarifies what you wanted to know.

Jolly Roger Yes 18" rim, your current rims are 17". The used tires you are looking at will not work on the rims you have.

Tire question?

I have an '07 Ford F150 and am in the market for new tires. My current tires are some BFG 265 70 17. I am looking at some used tires, but they are 275 65 18. Will they fit my truck? Does the 18 mean a whole different rim size?
