New Baja owner: wheels/tires size question

Post by Rok71 »

Hi, all!

I recently got my new (to me) ‘06 Baja Sport. Love it.

I have a question about wheels/tires. I know Baja comes with 16” rims standard.

Anybody here is running 17” wheels on their Bajas?

If I go to 17”, what tire size I should get?

Thanks!

I swapped out my OEM 16" wheels for 17" Crosstrek wheels and tires. Have not have any problems.

I use tirerack.com to see what their suggestion for +1" tires. That way your speedometer is closest to being accurate.

Thanks. I found website that provides comprehensive comparison of tire sizes and offers suggestions on the best matches: TireSize.com

If people want to go with 17” rims, then the best match for standard 225/60R16 will be 225/55R17.
