# Can 235 75 R15 Tires Replace 225 75 R15 Tires?

235 and 225 are the width of the tires in millimeters.  So 235 is 10 mm wider than 225.To further explain:Tire sizes are normally listed in 3 numbers.The first number is simply the width of the tire in mm.The second number is sidewall height as a percentage of the width.The third number is the diameter of the wheel (rim) in inches.So to calculate the diameter of a tire:(sidewall X 2) + wheelTo calculate the circumference of the tire (how far the tire travels in one revolution).

To answer your question simply yes.  235 75 r15 are only 10 mm wider and about 15mm taller in total height than the 225 75 r15 tire.  The 235 tire actually has a wider range of rim width than the 225 (something like 5 to 7.5 inches) so you can't go wrong stepping up to the 235.  Hope this helps people.

235 is slightly wider than the 225, only 10 mm wider.  So as long as you have clearance in your wheel well, you should be good to go. =)
