We Know Tires
FIRESTONE COMPLETE AUTO CARE HAS PUT TIRES ON MORE CARS THAN ANY OTHER COMPANY.
17 Inch Tires
As one of the most common sizes for many vehicles, 17-inch tires come in a range of specifications to fit your needs. Firestone Complete Auto Care carries a wide selection of options from superior all-season tires to tough 17-inch all-terrain tires or 17-inch mud tires to reliable winter tires, and even ones that can help you maximize your fuel efficiency. The right tires for you depends on your budget and priorities—and Firestone Complete Auto Care can help you narrow down your options. All 17-inch tires are sorted by tire width, height, and diameter. Explore the selection of 17-inch tires we have to offer for your vehicle below.
What's My 17 Inch Tire Width?
If you need to know the width (or cross section) of your 17-inch tires, the first step is locating a series of number similar to: P215/60 R17. This number should be on the vehicle's tire information placard on the inside of the driver's side door or printed on the sidewalls of your current tires. The width of your tires will be the first number in the series, measured in millimeters (mm). In this example, the tire's width would be 215mm.
How to Find the Height of 17 Inch Tires
You can find the height (or aspect ratio) of your tires in the same series of numbers as the width, found either on the inside of your driver's side door or on the sidewalls of your current tires. In the example P215/60 R17, the number directly after the / refers to the height of your tires, which means the height would be 60.
The aspect ratio (height) is given as a percentage of the tire's width. It is measured from the wheel rim to the top of the tread. In the example above, the 17-inch tires would have a sidewall height that is 60% of the tread width. 60% of 215mm is 129mm. Converted to inches, this 17-inch tire has an 8.46-inch tread width and 5.08-inch sidewall height.
