tire size chart

Anybody have a good tire size chart or a link to a chart. Trying to figure out what size tires will clear my fenders. Need a chart with heights, tread width and overall widths. THANKS

Every tire manufacturer website has a complete chart for every size they make, including rolling radius, height, width, everything. Since the sizes are standardized, each manufacturer is usually within about 0.1" of each other, except when dealing with actual tread width which can vary greatly. Bridgestone/Firestone has one of the largest selections of available sizes so their website might be the first to use as research.

Here's a start:http://www.bfgoodrichtires.com/assets/pdf/radial_ta.pdf
This is a good chart for passenger/sport-type tire sizes.

If you're looking for some bigger sizes for hot rods/street rods, go here:https://www.hoosiertire.com/strttire.htm

There are plenty of manufacturers to choose from, but this will get you started.

Sizes aren't as standardized as you might think. There is significant variations in overall diameter (1/2 inch) and section width (1/2 in plus) and tread width (1 inch or more) between brands, lines, and series of tires in each manufacturer's brand as well as from brand to brand. Load rating per tire seems to be the only corresponding value to designated size.

Like camshafts, there are more than one way to measure a tire. Static radius or rolling radius. Section width depends upon wheel width= a tire on a 9 inch wheel will be wider than the same tire on a 7 inch wheel.... by an inch on each sidewall.

I suggest finding a car like yours and see what others are running for wheel sizes and tires. Good luck.
