Re: V rated tires
But remember the aspect ratio. A 215/70 might fit, but I doubt a
215/55 will fit as a 55 series will be wider. I MIGHT fit but it would be
real close and I wouldnt do it as cramming a too big tire on a narrow
wheel is not the best thing to do. Cant remember but something about tire
wear or handling I think. L8R
