Can somebody tell me if 225/50/16 will fit on our Sentra SE?

Definetly not on the Stock rims. Even on a 7" wide rim, the overal diameter of that tire would be much larger than stock created excessive speedo/odo error.

A 205/50 16 is the best fit for a replacement tire. It is very close to the overal diameter of the stock 195/55 16's. There is no real need for a tire 225mm wide.

You hit the nail right on the head Max :)

We should have this tire size thing somewhere in the FAQ list. We should put the correct tire sizes for 16, 17, and 18" rims with the overall diameter, circumference, and revs/mile.

Here's a good calculator program for diamater etc....

I'm looking at 245/45/46 to replace the stock 195/55/16

The speedo error is very minimal, but will these tires physically fit on the stock SE-R rim (due to the width?)

Also, is a WR or ZR rated tire better (stickier)?

I thought ZR was but the tire rack site was saying W is exotic, Z is sports car....

Thanks!

Upon re-reading, they won't fit =)

Maybe 205 or 215....
