Replacement Tires For Trailer With 215/60R16 Tires


Whats the closet size tire that can fit a 215 60R16


Expert Reply:

The closest size tire we carry to the 215/60-R16 is a ST215/75R14. The ST215/75R14 part # AM10229 has a section width of 8.5" and outer diameter of 26.8". Compared to the 215/60R16 that measures 26.16" in diameter and has a 8.46" section width. However the ST215/75R14 only fits a 14 inch wheel not a 16 inch wheel.

The closest size tire we have to a 215/60-R16 that fits a 16 inch wheel is the ST235/80R16 tire part # PTC23516E. The ST235/80R16 has a section width of 9.25" and an outer diameter of 30.79".

You may be able to use the ST235/80R16 if you have the wheel well clearance to fit a larger tire. You want at least 3 inches of clearance between tire tread and fenders and 1 to 2 inches between the side wall and inside of the wheel well.
