What tire sizes will work on a 2001 Toyota Camry?

Asked by Feb 13, 2012 at 09:07 PM about the 2001 Toyota Camry CE

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

"My 2001 Camry uses 205/65/15 tires. That size is scarce in my area, so the dealers jack up the prices. Do I have options for other sized tires? e.g. 205/60? a wider tire?"
What other sizes will work?

in short you can't really change the tyre size it will put out your speedometer, affect the handling ect if getting tyres is a problem an easier soloution would be to change to some 16 inch rims and have a tyre with the same rolling circumferance fitted approx 205/50/16. the tyre shop can tell you the exact size it will cost more to change but this will also make it a more common size and therefore an easier tyre to find and cheaper to buy as there will be a larger range to pick from.

Similar question: I have a 2004 Solara with 17" rims. Can I change them to 15"or 16" Camry rims? I also would like to be able to buy more reasonable tires. The 17's look cool, but the tires are more expensive. I understand the circumference issue.

Yes you can undersize your tires, and you can oversize, as long as the overall diameter meets the original stock diamter i.e, a small wheel but slightly taller tire, or a bigger wheel, but slightly shorter tire. There is a formula for it, i can't remember exactly what it is, but if you go to a tire store they will be able to tell you what will work without changing the speedometer.
