    i am confused

    I finally got to order my self a new set off wheels the front 17x9 and the rear 17x10.5 black TTs. So I was looking to order some tires as well. I went out side to get current size tires that I have, the front are 275/40zr17 and the back 315/35zr1. How came the front are 40 and not 35, I also went to tirerack and checked for 275/35 and it said there was no tires found with those numbers.

    Yes you'll be able to use those tires with your new wheels. The reason why the front says 40 and the back says 35 is because most 315's don't come with a 40mm sidewall so a 35mm has to go on it, it's not a big enough difference to set your ABS/TCS sensors to go off but those are just the sizes that tire manufacturers offer. Tirerack said no tires could be found with that size because tire manufacturers don't offer it, I have the same sizes on my car and have Kumhos up front and Nittos in the back.

    A quick brief on how to read tire sizes, for example a "315/35/17" the first number (315) is the width of the tire in millimeters, the second number (35) is the height of the sidewall in millimeters also and the last number (17) is the size of the wheel in inches. The letters in the mix indicate the speed rating.

    Hope that helps
