tyre sizes

I,m driving 16" modulars now. But can get my hands on a very nice set of mach 5,s, only disadvantage is that they are 15".

I don,t want to change my ride to much. I,m driving on 235/75/16.
Whats comparable to that

Leon

I don't quite understand your question.

Anywhoo... Here is a nice tool to find a tire size and be able to compare them.

That is not a disadvantage. 15" wheels give you a much wider range of tires to choose from and prices are cheaper.

I meant that i can,t use the tyres I've got now. The springs will be +2 inch also so normally I should be able to fit bigger tyres. I don't have power steering so much wider isn't much of an option is it? I like the look on the one-tons, (9x16)??

The thing is I don't have much experience with that. Do I have to change the gearing ratio. Does it affect the axle travel, should I change the bump stops.

Please share your wisdom.
