tire options for stock 16" wheels 3000GT

Post by Ray » Wed Sep 23, 2015 9:26 pm

I need a new set of tires.
I currently have 225/55/16 on the stock wheels that are on my 94 base 3000GT. Will these wheels safely hold a wider tire - 235 or 245?

Thanks

A 235 or 245 tire will buldge a little on a stock 16" wheel, but it will work.

Thanks for the information.
Will 245/50 physically fit?

I am too old to be driving this car, but I can't find anything that I enjoy as much.

Yes, they will fit. They will just look kind of weird. It will give you that off road tire look. LOL

Thanks for the help.
I have a chance to buy 4 new touring all season tires at half price, but I think I will pass.

Love that line !! I resemble that remark !! :lol: :lol: However, I'm learning to enjoy my 2005 Sebring Limited convertible too. 8)

http://www.tirerack.com is pretty good at matching wheels, tires, etc per car.
