Interchangable Tire Size

My 24 Flint calls for 32 X 4 1/2 tires, which are available at a rediculously
high price. Will a 36 X 4 fit the 23" rims on my Flint and also what other sizes are you guys running??
Want a whitewall in a size that will look good without being distracting.

Re: Interchangable Tire Size

Yates, the 36 X 4 is for a 28" rim. On tires that are sized like this, double the second number and subtract that sum from the first number to know the rim size.
(32X4 1/2,,,,, 4 1/2 X 2 = 9 subtracted from 32 = 23}

Re: Interchangable Tire Size

Yates,

If you add up the tire width twice then subtract that figure from the tire diameter it will give you the rim size...The 32 X 4 1/2 would have a 23" rim...The 36 X 4 would require a 28" rim....Look at coker or other tire companys tire size charts and you can figure out the tire size that would fit on a 23" rim

The Durantcars section says that the E55 comes with a 32 X 6.20 full balloon tire also. What size rim would they fit on? A 19"????
