Default Can i put 165/70/r13 tyres on alloys that say they need 175/70/r13's ?

Basically my standard wheels require 165/70/r13 but when i got two replaced they put 175/70/r13.So i know you can get 175's on 165 wheels.But im buying some alloys that say they need 175/70/r13 so obviously i can put the two i currently have straight on but can i put the other two 165/70/r13's straight on aswell ?

Arrow solve.

There'll be a problem only if your new rim width is more than 5.5" (<6").
If it's 5.5" or less, then no problem.

Can you please tell us the width of the stock wheels to advise you better on this? And 165/175 will work fine on any wheel with a width of 5 or 5.5J.

Theres no sense in having tyres of diff sizes. The diameter of 165/70 R13 will be smaller than 175/70 R13 which makes for an uneven ride height. Moreover, the brake balance and suspension setup of a car is designed to work with the same tyre size on all 4 wheels, changing this car cause the car to behave abnormally while braking and cornering.

U might as well buy 2 more 175/70 R13s.

Yes, that's what I meant. Your tyres will fit just fine but consider what Shan2nu has written.
If you drive a FWD car, then it's better to have same tyres all around.

Sorry boss. His post was awaiting approval. That's why it appears before yours.

That means that if your new allys are 5.5J then both 165 & 175 section tyres can go on it just fine. But if they are 6J or 6.5J then that's an issue.
