Was wonder if any one knows if a 255 50 16 tire will fit on a 7 in wide wheel? That is that would fit correctlly I should say. :s
Jim couldn't be more correct. When I had my five new Firestone Firehawk SS20's put on I assumed all five of my wheels were the stock 15x8 rims. When I got home I put one in the spare well and started mounting the other four and one seemed to be kinda bulging:eek. I figured maybe it was underinflated or something but thought it was strange that it bulged all the way around:confused. I went ahead and put the center caps and trim rings on. The last trim ring wouldn't fit - that's when I realized that wheel had been my spare and it was a 15x7.5 rim so I had to swap the sparead. I still haven't decided what to do. I'll either order another 15x8 rim or I'll order one narrower tire and make it a spare-only.80convertible said:Even if you can get it to fit, that tire sure is going to protrude out from the wheel by a lot!
