    Tire Size Calculator

    Ever wonder how another wheel/tire size compares to what you're running now? I've found this calculator gets the job done:

    http://www.discounttire.com/dtcs/infoTireMath.do

    In my case it showed that 245/75-16; 265/60-18, 245/50-20 and 275/45-20 were all nearly the same on key dimensions.

    BTW, 6 x 5.5 wheels with a standard offset, very common on Chevy/GMC truck applications, are easily found replacements on a VX.

    Just always be sure to also check the center bore measurements since that's the one that usually makes a wheel a go or no-go for a VX.

    Most Chevy's use about a 65mm or so, but the VX requires a 110mm, and I don't care how big a BFH you have...that just ain't going to happen...

    Also the offset will determine if more cladding trim will be needed vs. the +38 OEM offset...
