Figure Out Size on Your Factory Original Rims!

February 25th, 2010

Are you like me where I have no idea how to determine the size of my Toyota 4 Runner rims ? The dealer says to do it this way but then the tire shop says to do it the other way, right? There’s basically two ways to figure it out:

1. Use a tape measure (which is ABSOLUTELY wrong because it will give you the wrong result)

2. Completely understanding the set of numbers on your tire.

To use the tape measure, don’t even bother.

So let’s understand that alien language on that tire of yours, shall we? Okay, so let’s say for example there’s something on your tire that says “225/50R16”; the first set of numbers is the width (225), the second number is the profile (50) and finally, the third number with the letter in the front is the diameter (R16); which means that “16” is the size of your rim.

Just remember that this is only an example; all tires are different which means that all the numbers can be different. Just look for something that looks like this. Without understanding this, how are you going to order your wheel? If you still need help, you can call us at 1-800-896-7467 and we’ll be more than happy to help.
