Help with tyre size


Recommended Posts


I have Aurion AT-X, 2006 and currently using 215/60/16 tyres with alloys and thinking to inch-up to 17".

The alloy wheels I bought are from Lexus IS 250 with two 225/45/17 and another one is 245/45/17 and the other one is wheel only ( I reckon IS250 is rear wheel drive, so 225 for front and 245 for rear).

As the three tyres have road worthy treads, I think I will use the current tyres then buy the recommended size which is 215/55/17.

If I buy only one 245/45/17 tyre, can I use these tyres for my Aurion?

or if I need to use all same sized tyres, better buying two 225 tyres?

Many thanks

225 or 245, there will be a difference compared to the 215 which will affect the reliability of the speedo. The difference will be marginal, but if you're not fussed then any of those sizes are fine. Bear in mind that the overall diameter will be lower compared to 215/55 series.
