    225x60x16 rims&tires on 2005 DTS

    I have a 2000 Deville with a blown head gasket but with 4 new 225x60x16 rims&tires that don't leak air that I would like to put on my 2005 Deville DTS that has 4 bald 235x55x17 rims&tires that have many chrome-plated air leaks. I calculated that the tires have a smaller diameter and revolve 15 more times per mile so speedometer will be off a little. I also know tpms won't work until I add wheel sensors. Are there any concerns, like sensors for Stabilitrak, CVRSS, ABS, ...?

    As long as all of the tires are the same size, ABS/TCS/stability will be fine.

    You might want to check and make sure that the load carrying capacity will hold the weight of the newer DTS.

    ------------------------
    2000 through 2005 Deville -
    base - DHS and DTS models are all the same weight - 4000 pounds -

    2006+ "DTS" is a different car - but still weighs 4000 pounds -

    2k car has new rims? Seems u let newer car languish. So if u swap, than 2k car will have bad heads and lousy wheels. Good match.

    I just bought the '05 knowing rims were leaking and knowing I had 8 good Deville rims and tires at home waiting to be put on something. I have never had luck with chrome plated aluminum wheels as the chrome chips off from the back side. The 2k had original non-chrome plated wheels, not as fancy looking but don't leak air.

    Swapping parts from several cars is common. Usually owner plans to get rid of less desirable car. Or let it sit in yard as decoration.

    Well I finally put the 225x60x16ers on my 2005DTS. A much cushier ride than the 235x55x17ers it came with. I wouldn't have believed that small difference in profile would be noticeable. I love the cushy ride, the whole reason I drive a caddy. When I want a rough ride, I drive my vette.

    The 60 series tire may be tuned for ride comfort. Could be a grandma spec'd tire. Most 55 series tires are performance oriented and probably have stiffer sidewall construction. Unless its a Goodyear eagle LS. Than all sizes are crap.

    and yet the "kids" will TRY to convince us
