Tire size question
Okay, this may be a really dumb question but i have an 06 Laredo and I'm gonna buy the srt8 reps 20in is the tire size the same they use on the actual srt8 or is it different? The people at the tire place were asking me the size and I wasn't positive I just told them to look it up as an srt8 for just the front tires (20x9) but I'm not sure if thats right... Sorry for such a dumb question but I would rather be dumb now than later...:p

Re: Tire size question
the front srt8 tire size is 255-45-20. Most guys here get 275-45-20 because there are more tires to choose from in that size.....and they are cheap. I like the 255-45-20 on lowered Jeeps!

Re: Tire size question
255 45 20 is a good size and it wont change your speedo at all.

the 45 is a percentage so it is taller, but not much

Re: Tire size question
alright thanks everyone, the guys at firestone keeps telling me i need to know the diameter of the rim not sure what he means i told him 20x9 even told him that 275/45R20 is what tire-rack said he keeps tellin me he needs to know some diameter, I dont really know what else he wants so im just gonna call oewheels on monday and find out the specifics of the rim size and if thats not enough for him then im gonna find someone else to do the tires cause so far he hasnt been very helpful.

Robpp said it best
Everything you need to know about rims...

They just want to make sure it will fit. Just take them up there, OR wip out the ol' measuring tape..... Because if they are TRUE reps, the fronts are 20x9 and rears are 20x10 to my understanding

Re: Tire size question

Re: Tire size question

Re: Tire size question
The 50's will be about. 13mm taller.

Edit: my bad. The sidewall will be 13mm taller, the tire will be 24mm taller.
