look on the sidewall of your tires that are already on your car. it should look something like "LT235/85R16" or "P 215/65R15" its not gunna look like that exactly but that will tell you what tire you will need to get

Agreed, In addition there should be a sticker, usually on the driver's door or door frame, that should specify the original tire size and the recommended tire pressure for that size. But if you have aftermarket wheels, then that's not very helpful.

oh yeah, i totally forgot about that!! but then again i dont have aftermarket wheels

Courtney and Adam, thanks a lot for that. Would the markings be the same irrespective of the rim size though?

The markings on the tire will tell you what size that particular tire is, if you get new wheels you may need to get different size tires. Are you getting new rims?

Was a just a thought but I might actually get new rims if they go well with the car
