if my winter tire is 245 65 r17 the rim is what recommended rim width 7 7.5 8 or 8.5 why the options? is there that much play between rim width and tire size, how does the rim width change the drive what is ideal 7.5 inches?
Hello, the factory rim width for the 245/65R17 tire is 7.5 inches - it is the best width, offset also important. Oem ET is 45 mm for 7.5x17 rim. Using the tire calculator you can play with rim and tire specs.
Is there any data base/knowledge of how far I can stretch the offset for a Honda Ridgeline? Oem is 45, wheel width 7.5; I wonder if I could take it to 55, and wheel width 8 or 8.5, using bmw rims or other rims that fit otherwise. Do you actually have to try them on and eyeball the suspension clearances? (Irregardless of tire application)
Can i fit 16 inch rims on a 2006 Ridgeline i have 20 inch now and i want to down size to 16 to fit all terrain tires
Hi,ilie,the stock rims size is 17'',I suggest that you use 17'' instead,if you truelly want 16'',It is also fitable.
yes original i had 17 then i did put rockstar xd 20inch with 275x45x20 i did grind about 1 inch from fenders. but new becouse the roads are full of put holles i what to down size the rim to put big tires . i was wandering if i can fit 15 inch but i think so 16 inch its the smallest i can
Hi,ilie,Yes.And make sure the tires are compatible.
