    I need some tire help

    Alright guys, I am new to the tire and wheel category. I need some advice on choosing tires to go with the wheels:

    http://store.summitracing.com/defaul...h.asp&N=400292

    I need them to be H speed rated at least, with a load rating of a 97 or 98, and fit that 17x9 rim. I just need advice because I don't know the difference between brands, and I don't know what is meant by the Traction Rating, Temperature Rating, UTQG Tread Wear Rating, or even Tire Size.

    Thanks a lot

    Well, look at the numbers on the side of your current tire (should be in the form of; P###/##R17). Really all you need to do is keep these numbers the same and keep the load rating the same or higher.

    Here's some useful tire info;

    Thanks for the link, but they will be different than the tires on there now becuase I am pairing them with the rims in the link above.

    Your link renders 1500 rim options so it's no much use. Go to the Tirerack and learn everything you need to know about choosing the right tire for your eldo.
