Wheel/Tyre Size Calculator/Comparer

Recommended Posts

In my years of searching the internet I have not come across such a good Wheel size calculator as this.

HERE

It is very simple to use, it explains absolutely everything about the fitment. It even compares the old fitment (OEM or not) to the new fitment in detail.

The picture below is just a screen cap and example of what it can do and the info you can get.

Haha, I have been trying to keep that site secret for a long time! We use it quite a lot as the pictures are far easier to show someone than try and explain it verbally.

Just remember that the measurements are taken to the inside of the bead on the wheel NOT the outside so you will need to add an extra 10mm either side if you want them measurements to the outside of the wheel. :)

Haha sorry mate!

I can't believe it hasn't been posted before. Easily the best one out there.

Set it up in the picture to see the measurements for my future 18x9.5 Style 5's! :wub: One day.

9.5"s at 20et will require massive custom guard work on the back of the E36 :(

It does not tell you everything - it does not take into account casing sizes and shapes and it does not relate the numbers to a specific vehicle.

This is just the easiest bit and is just basic mathematics.

Also remember that those measurements are to the inside of the rim lip not the outside so you wil need to add the width of your rim lip as well.

The little overlay diagram on the right on that one is quite handy B)

yep, it's awesome. I used it for baselining e46 7J16 ET 47 (205/55/16) against e90 8J17 ET34 (225/45/17) and 8.5J 17 ET37 (245/40/17). Being able to visualise how things change with those dimensions is brilliant.
