Tires....

I'm a new 94 F250 powerstroke owner and was hoping to pickup some snowtires for the winter. I looked at a site which told me the tires i need are around 235/85-16.

I'm looking for snow tires locally. Found a good deal for tires that are P225/75r15.... Could these work on the car?

If not what kind of range should I be looking for?

Thanks

I PREFER GOODYEAR WRANGLER, SILENT ARMOR'S IN A 10 PLY, IF YOU CHECK GOODYEARS SITE, THERE RATED THE HIGHEST FOR AN ALL SEASON, PLUS I OPENED A GOODYEAR CARD AND GOT $10 OR $20 OFF EACH TIRE, AND 0% FINANCING FOR 1 YEAR. THATS HARD TO BEAT. THEY ALSO HAVE A 60K MILE TREAD WEAR WARRANTY, AND THE HAVE KEVLAR INNER WALLS, UNLIKE THE OFF BRANDS.

well i suggest you get 16"s since your rim is 16". the tires you posted that you found a good deal on are 15"

Good point black pearl

Only thing is that those tires come with steel rims.... Would make everything a bit easier.

Would it be ok to switch froom 16" to 15" tires?

you could go 15's but they are tiny. 16's are difficult for big tire sizes too unless you wanna pay a lot of money for some decent tires. im currently lookin for tires for my 16" factory wheels and i wanna do 35's but its a PITA since the factory wheel is only 16x8. so im gonna either try and find 16x10's or 17x10's

I doubt it. I know you can't fit 15" wheels on superduty's, and i'm pretty sure you can't fit them on OBS's either.

16" wheels are the smallest you can fit.

Nothing wrong with running 35's on the factory wheels. LOTS of guys do it.

Just make sure there not any wider then 12.5, and your good to go



And how is it hard to find big tire size's for 16's

Jonathon or John Although technically i have a list of nicknames the length of I-95, so call me what ya like
