danbuc Posted August 24, 2004 Report Share Posted August 24, 2004 Hi, I have a '98 STS with the stock 16" rims. They recomend using 235/60/R16 size tires but it seems to be a very rare size. Every where I've looked, most of the nice tires either come in 245/60/R16 or 235/50/R16. The fisrt has a wider diameter which I'm unsure about because I don't want to risk rolling the side wall off the rims in hard cornering. The second has a shorter sidewall which could potentially cause the speedometer to read improperely, which I don't want to mess with. If I can, I would like to go with the wider tire instead of the shorter tire. Does anyone know if it's safe to change the tire size withount having problems with handling? Thanks in advance Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
