Wheels & Tires Buyer's Guide for Imports

A Comprehensive Guide to Buying Wheels and Tires for Your Import
At PRO Import Tuners.com, we know what wheels and tires work best with Imports. This guide will give you all the information you will need to find the wheels and tires that fit your Import best. To find wheels and/or tires for you Import, just follow these 3 simple steps. As always, GIVE US A CALL if you need any help.

Step 1: Use our Wheel Configuration Reference found further down on this page to find what bolt pattern, wheel sizes, and offsets will work with your Import. Your new wheels must be the same bolt pattern as your original factory wheels, but you can choose a different size and offset. In general, we DO NOT recommend getting a wheel that is more than 2 inches taller or 1.5 inches wider than your factory wheel. Now, browse through the wheels we offer and select a set that you like and are available in a configuration that will fit on your Import.

Step 2: Next, use our calculator below to find out the tire sizes that fit best on the wheels you selected. Our calculator outputs a list of tire sizes that are considered to have near perfect fitment, which means no speedometer inaccuracy, ABS problems, etc. We don't sell tires, but there are usually quite a few local options to purchase them. You can even use your current tires if they match one of the sizes our calculator recommends.

You can find your factory tire diameter, profile, and width by looking at your owners manual, or by looking at the markings on the outside of your factory tires (see the tire measurment section near the bottom of this page).

Factory Tire Diameter (inches):
Factory Tire Profile:
Factory Tire Width (mm):

New Wheel Diameter (inches):
New Wheel Width (inches):

Step 3: You should also pick up some lug nuts to go with your new wheels. Every wheel on our website says what type of lug nuts it needs (either "standard" aftermarket lug nuts or "tuner style" aftermarket lug nuts). All our aftermarket lug nuts are tapered to ensure the best wheel fitment. Your factory lug nuts will most likely NOT work with your new wheels, so it is important that you get some good quality aftermarket lug nuts! For installation, tighten each lug nut using a criss-cross pattern, usually to 80 lb-ft of torque each. Re-tighten each lug nut after about 100 miles of driving.

TIP: With our wheels, it is not necessary for you to purchase "hubcentric rings." This is because the wheels we sell only accept tapered aftermarket lug nuts, which will automatically center the wheel if installed properly.


Wheel Configuration Reference
Please use this reference to determine which wheel sizes and configurations will generally fit your Import best. Please note though that this is just a general reference guide: you should always double-check to make sure the wheels you are getting will actually fit. If you need any help, just GIVE US A CALL at 1-888-9-PRO-TUNERS.

More Infromation on Wheels and Tires
Here is a quick overview of how tires are measured:

Sample Tire: 195/55ZR15 89Y
Spec What it Means
195 The section width. Also called the "tire width". This is how wide the tire's contact patch is (in millimeters) when inflated.
55 The aspect ratio. Also called the "tire profile". This is the ratio between the tire's section height and section width. Section height is just the height of the rubber you see around the wheel, multiply it by 2 to get the total vertical space that the rubber takes up.
Z The letter Z is present here only if the tire's true speed rating is in excess of 149 mph. The old way of measuring tires actually had the tire's speed rating here. Tire buyers got used to seeing the "ZR" on a tire as meaning "high performance" and so tire manufacturers have kept it here eventhough it is not necessary. Note that, just because a Z is present here, it does not mean that the tire's true speed rating is a Z - it could be a W or Y, which are both ratings above 149 mph.
R The R stands for Radial, which is how the tire is constructed. Don't worry about this because almost all tires are now radial.
15 The inside diameter of the tire. Also called the "tire diameter". Always match this with your wheel diameter.
89Y The "Service Description", which is a load index number combined with a speed rating. With Imports, you usually don't have to concern yourself with the load index as it is always sufficient for how the tire is intended to be used. The higher the load index, the more weight a tire can hold. For example, a load index of 85 means each tire can hold 1135 lbs and a load index of 91 indicates 1356 lbs per tire.

The speed rating is the tire's maximum recommended speed. Some common ratings are: H = 130 mph, V = 149 mph, W = 168 mph, Y = 186 mph, Z = 149+ mph (a Z rating technically means "above 149 mph" but in practice it usually means "somewhere above 186 mph". It is best to consult the tire manufacturer to get the true maximum recommended speed on Z rated tires.)
Note: To convert millimeters to inches, divide by 25.4.


Lastly, here are some other concepts that are important in wheel and tire selection:

Term Definition
Wheel Bolt Pattern (PCD) Specified by the number of wheel bolts and the diameter (a.k.a. PCD or Pitch Circle Diameter) of the imaginary circle made by connecting those wheel bolts.
Offset This is how far the mounting surface of your wheel is from the "centerline" of the wheel. A more positive offset will cause your wheel to mount closer to the inside of your wheel wells. A offset that is too far out of range can cause rubbing problems, either on the fender (offset too low) or on the inside of the wheel well (offset too high).
Hubcentric / Lugcentric To prevent vibrations, a wheel must be centered when it is installed. These are the two ways to center wheels when you mount them: Lugcentric uses the lug nuts themselves to center the wheel, and Hubcentric centers the wheel around the hub. Since all the wheels we sell only accept aftermarket "tapered" lug nuts, they are automatically Lugcentric.
