can i put 275/40/22 on the 265/40/22 rim?

Recommended Posts

I can get a good deal on some Pirelli 275/40/22 for my 2011 Sport but i always bought 265/40/22.   I know they’ll clear but would there be any issues with the wider tire on that 22” sport rim as far as load or drive issues.

You would do best to follow Pirelli's wheel width recommendation for the specific model of 275/40R22 tire you are contemplating to buy.

 

Many Pirelli tire models show the 9-inch wheel width on your Edge Sport as being the minimum acceptable size for 275/40R22, while a few other Pirelli tire models recommend 10-to-11/12-inch wheel widths.

 

Lincoln provides 9 1/2-inch wide rims for the 275/40R22 tires on its Aviator, which presumably are the minimum for the OEM tire manufacturer.

 

The Tiresize website provides these general statements about your Edge Sport's OEM tire size and the upsized tire you are considering, as well as the comparative graphic, below...

 

Good luck!

 

265/40R22 tires have a diameter of 30.3", a section width of 10.4", and a wheel diameter of 22". The circumference is 95.3" and they have 665 revolutions per mile.
Generally they are approved to be mounted on 9-10.5" wide wheels.
Specs may vary by manufacturer

 

275/40R22 tires have a diameter of 30.7", a section width of 10.8", and a wheel diameter of 22". The circumference is 96.3" and they have 658 revolutions per mile.
Generally they are approved to be mounted on 9-11" wide wheels.
Specs may vary by manufacturer
