wheel size help
i got my wheels refurbed and didn't keep the runcraps that were on them - as a matter of fact, i threw them away.
So then it comes to pick some new rubber, and I'm wondering what size will fit my wheels, I am convinced they're 17s.
I ask my friend what size are the tyres on his gf's mini, as they're the same...
he says 195 60 16....16s???
I'm confused, so I measure my wheel with tape...sure enough 17.5 inches diameter across, but I do notice the number 6 x 16 on the wheel, so i'm confused as hell.
THen I measure my friend's mini....same, 17.5 inch across the face of each wheel.
Why am I being so thick?? are these wheels 16s but actually 17.5 across (i.e .75 inch wider than the lip?) or what?
....jeez, what a noobelicious first post, I can only hope it gets better...
thanks in advance for the help.
