The speedometer cable is hooked up the the front wheel.limegreenlighting said:It shouldnt mess the speedo up cause the 150 tire is also a 17" tire well that is atleast what I think?
for example using that equation...Steezy McBreeezy said:yeh you'll be fine.
quick question though.. why are u going with 70 profile instead of the 60?
that second number is the aspect ratio. that number represents the height of the sidewall of the tire as a percentage of the width of the tire. eg: 70% of 130mm is 91mm...so the sidewall of the tire is 91mm tall. conversely, 70% of 150mm is 105mm....so that tire's sidewall measures 105mm. that's about 14mm more height in the sidewall of the tire, but it actually results in a tire that is 28mm taller because that height is added at the top and bottom of the tire. by going with the 150/60 you keep roughly the same tire size in comparison to the height and circumference but gain about 20mm in width. a tire with more circumference will rotate a little slower than stock and will require a little more power to rotate, although the extra power needed will be pretty much negligible. hope that makes sense. btw, having a different tire circumference would throw off your speedometer if it was measured at the rear wheel.limegreenlighting said:Whats the difference between 60 and 70? The factory 130 is a 70 so why shouldnt the 150 be?
