Not sure what you're asking. The tire size is listed on the sidewall and the the wheel size is the same as the tire size. If the tire says 235/55/16, the wheel is 16". Are you considering buying larger wheels or tires?

I'm wondering about getting slightly wider tires from stock and what a good fit would be in a 15" rim. I believe the bolt pattern is 6x5.5 .
From what I've read, stock tire was 6'' wide and 23.6" tall,14" rim. Would 185/60 15 or 170/65 15 be OK?
