    Assuming the rims are the correct size for the '03, they'll fit your '95. Correct tire size for your car, in a 17", is 225/55/17.

    Re: wheel fitment

    You sure about that size ???? The 235/55/17 (my 2002 STS) has the same OD (27.1) as the 16" stock tires for the later Devilles.

    EDIT: TireRack says his OEM tire was 215/70/15 at 26.8" OD or the optional 215/60/16 at 26.2"

    smoooth225, What is the tire size listed on your driver's door sticker ?

    Re: wheel fitment

    You might want to get the advice of a good tire shop - that tire (your door sticker) has an OD of 27.7" - at least 0.5" or more than the 235/55/17.

    Your original oddball tire size doesn't fit with the Deville 16" and 17" wheels MC and I are talking about, and there's no such tire size as "225/25/17".

    What do you make of this 215-75-15 ???? Was there a wholesale change to 16" wheels in '96 ? (According to TireRack, 16" was a 1995 option.)

    Re: Wheel fitment - 1995 Deville with original 15's

    OK - That looks better - that tire has an original OD of 26.9", right in the center of the ballpark for original OD on all these FWD cars.

    (See how one number affects entire tire sizing ?)

    Because the 1995 with original 15's is different from our usual 16" and 17" discussions, I still recommend talking to a good tire/wheel shop. Better to have good info than spend a bunch of bucks and find out that there's a size/fit mistake.

    www.tirerack.com , your car or tire size. Show all tires. Preferred tire brand. Specs (specifications).

    The concours always had 16's. Base and d'Elegance models had 15's until '96, at which point all Devilles had 16's as standard.

    The size of the wheel makes no difference - the tire outside diameter is the determining accuracy factor.

    Get into TireRack and bounce the specs for your original tire size against the new tire size. Find representative tires in each size and open the "specs" tab for each. Outside Diameter is listed for every tire. As long as the OD's are within 0.3" of each other the accuracy and speedo differences will be negligible.
