Question on rims on a 1988 IrocZ28. the front rims have a stamp on them indicating 'front' and the back rims 'rear'. the tire size that came on the car when I bought it are P245/50/R16 (96T-mts). Im pretty sure the tires are due for rotation. what is the proper tire rotation in regards to the 'stamp' on the rim? does that make a difference? why? and what other tire sizes can I fit on the car? Are the ones that are currently on the correct size? Any help or suggestions are helpful.


Those wheels are what is referred to as "staggered" meaning different sizes front and rear. If you measure the width of the wheels the rear ones will be wider. I'm not sure what size you are supposed to be using but the rears should be wider. This ki ... 1988 Chevrolet Camaro

Found out that the 'stamped' rims on my 88 camaro indicated 'front' and 'rear' and that should not be rotated. My question is, if the rear tires should be wider, what am I compromising with tires that are the same all around? what do I gain with the proper tire size? the car sits low with the tires that are on there now when I bought the car. I would like for it to be just a bit higher, but just dont want to put on the wrong tire size. Any suggestions?

I am trying to find what tires will fit on my Chevrolet Cavalier, 1996, Coupe Base. My Girlfriend's dad is going to put new tires on her car, and her tires are in better shape in mine, and was trying to see if he would put the tires onto mine. The only issue is the tire size is slightly bigger... I figured in a calculator its about .8" radius bigger than what i have on the car now. The tires i have on now are 205-60-15, where as her tires are 205-70-15. I want to make sure these will work on my


The difference between 205-60-15 and 205-70-15 tires is that the sidewall is a little thicker on the 205-70-15's, in which makes what msapp12 said accurate. For your car you can fit 195-65-15, 205-60-15, and 215-60-15 tires. Stock tire size for that ... 1996 Chevrolet Cavalier

Spare tire While we are on the subject of tires - I asked the dealer to upgrade my spare to a full size tire which they agreed to do for $400 extra. That included a matching rim and they would not price a steel rim for me. I pick up my Motor this afternoon and will proceed to Discount tire and get a cheap aluminum alloy rim and tire for less than $200.(Discount does not sell steel rims for the Azera) In the Southwest and mountainous states like Colorado it is insane to have a donut for a spare.
