wider would be the middle number...Just think that the guys running "rubber bands" on those huge wheels, are in the 30-40 series

i had 32 11.5 15's on 15x10 wheels on my 4runner, and they stuck out at least 1/4-1/2 the tire past the body.

if you want metric, you would have to move up to a 275(which is about a 33" tall tire) Probably somethign like 275-70-15

first number is width in millimeters, so a 275 tire is 10.8 in wide.

second number is aspect ratio. if the middle number is 70, that means that the sidewall is 70% as high as the tire is wide.

so a 275/70/16 is:

10.8 in wide
~7.6 inch high sidewall.

so, 7.6 *2 + 16 = 31 inch diameter.



an easier way is to just use the tire size calculator that Bob has on the site.

tire calculator


Enter current tire size, tire size you want, and it will give you dimensions of each.
