    Yes. You can use the same rim as long as the tire will clear the wheelwell

      oh ok thanks that tells you my knowledge of tires so the size of my tires is 215 65 17 and I want to put maybe 245 40 20, would that work?

      I thought the 17 or 18 was the height.

    You have a 17 inch rim. So you could maybe do a 235 17. But not a 20.

    The tire size shown below is P185/60R14 82H. The P represents the car type, Passenger. The 185 represents its section width (tire width in mm). The 60 is the tires Aspect Ratio (the ratio of the sidewall height to the tread width). The R represents radial tire construction. The 14 represents the rim/wheel size and 82H represents the load index and speed symbol.
