Good thread. People should have to read this before their account is activated.

BTW, I run 38's, but only drive straight.

Re: What size tires will fit my FJ?

Can you do one for pizza cutters? I think I want to go for that old school look on my next sneaker purchase.

If you are unable to read posts #1, #2, and #3 in this very thread, I am unable to help you further.

Re: What size tires will fit my FJ?

I think the one thing that will be UNDER APPRECIATED in this thread is how much time and effort it takes to make this kind of information available in a glance.
This is not a 15 minute posting... Not only have many of the common tire sizes been provided for multiple wheel sizes but the method of calculation and conversion has been provided allowing someone willing to do some work to determine a tire size on their own.
Great job VK.

Take a look at post #1 - particularly ASPECT RATIO. Click the links, and really understand the concept of aspect ratio, as it relates to wheel size and tread width.

In a Metric tire size, all three numbers are interrelated. You need to understand the concept before you can figure out what size tire you want to run.

I've even put how to do the math in the first post.

All the information is there - it's not rocket science to figure it out.

Do this:
1) What size rims do I have?
2) How tall of a tire do I want?
Everything else is dependent upon your answers to the first two questions.

"Pizza Cutter" sizes are already listed above.

Gracias amigo. I meant no offense, as I'm sure neither did you. Some of the technical math aspects of this stuff totally fly over my head. I can't tell you how many times I've googled "understanding tire sizes" but it doesn't really help.

It's all good, I have other talents, understanding math is just not one of them.

Thanks for putting this all together.

Re: What size tires will fit my FJ?

Thanks a ton for putting this together VK. If people cant understand your awesome charts then they have no reason changing tire size.

Thanks to all the locals who have offered great deals and help to make my build possible!

Hint: look at tires with an 80- or 85-aspect ratio. Tall and skinny.
