Directional tires will have a rotation arrow branded on the tire's sidewall. The arrow indicates the direction in which the tire should turn. Unless they are dismounted and remounted on their wheels to accommodate use on the other side of the vehicle, directional tires are to be used on one side of the vehicle and are intended to be rotated from the front axle to the rear axle. If different tire sizes are used on the front vs. rear axle, the tires become location-specific and prohibit tire rotation unless remounted.
If you want the same tire size and are unsure what size is installed on your vehicle, please confirm the size as listed on the tire sidewall before placing your order. The tire sizing we list are based on the years of experience we have with plus size wheel and tire combinations. However, it is important to note that these optional tire sizes are based on vehicle specific wheel sizes/offsets.
Speed ratings were established to match the speed capability of tires with the top speed capability of the vehicles to which they are applied. For example, an V-speed rated tire is designed for maximum speeds of 149 mph. To maintain the speed capabililty of a vehicle, use replacement tires with ratings equal or greater than those of the original tires.
Yes. But keep in mind that many times when a vehicle is equipped with run-flat tires from the factory, a spare tire is not included.
The load index on a tire's sidewall helps identify its strength and ability to contain air pressure. The load index can range from 0 to 279 and indicates how much weight the tire is certified to carry at maximum inflation pressure. It is not recommended to buy a tire with a lower load index than your vehicle's original tire.
Proper tire air pressure is determined by the vehicle manufacturer's specific vehicle make and model. The vehicle manufacturer's pressure recommendation can be usually found in the door jamb, glove box lid or gas cap door, as well as in the vehicle owner's manual.
The wheel sizing we list are based on the years of experience we have with plus size wheel and tire combinations. However, it is important to note that these optional wheel sizes are based on your vehicle's specific features.
Some wheels are designed to fit multiple vehicle models and will use a hub centering ring to reduce the bore size to match the hubs of different vehicles. These rings help to keep the wheel precisely centered on the vehicle hub, which helps reduce vibration.
Many wheels are lug centric and do not require the use of a centering ring. Typically found on truck and SUV fitments, the center bore of the wheel is larger than the vehicle hub diameter to allow for various hub/axle configurations that may have been an option from the factory. These wheels need to be installed with the wheel/tire assembly off the ground when the lug nuts/bolts are torqued. This allows the lugs to properly center the wheel and secure it on the mounting surface of the hub.
It depends on the vehicle. If a sensor is not installed, most vehicle's TPMS warning lights will flash at start-up then stay illuminated until the TPMS problem is resolved and sensors are installed on the vehicle and synched to it. Some vehicles may not allow certain performance-oriented vehicle control settings to be accessed whenever the TPMS system is not functioning for any reason. Check with your vehicle owner's manual for information regarding your vehicle.
