Look up the correct size on Tire Rack or America's Tire websites.

I did and it says 225 50 r17 am just wondering if that would cause a problem?


If you have 230/50's instead of 225/50's there is no problem as they are almost exactly the same size.

So this wont affect my car? I just got it and it need new tires i i just wanted to make sure it wont affect it over time


I can't see how there could be any possible problem. If the car is AWD and you did not replace all the tires I suppose there could be a problem.

Awd? Sorry i dont know much about tires and all the tires are the same size


This should be ok. The new tires are only 5mm wider, which is only about 1/4".


FOR asked if your model car was AWD or All wheel drive, the tires all need to be the same size to work properly. Like everyone said, you are fine. Drive it and enjoy your new ride.
