    Default Tyres

    I've put together these links to help in the finding of tyres for the NSX for various years.

    1991 - 1993
    Front 205/50ZR15
    Rear 225/50ZR16

    1994 - 2001
    Front 215/45ZR16
    Rear 245/40ZR17

    2002 - 2005
    Front 215/40ZR17
    Rear 255/40ZR17

    The tyres that are listed is not going to be an exhaustive list, and even though some tyres are listed may not be available.

    On the rear with 17", how wide can the tyre be? I have 255/40/17 Toyo T1R which are running low. Can I go up to 265/40/17?

    I am running 225/45/16 up front.

    This is the tyre size calculator I use.

    http://www.miata.net/garage/tirecalc.html

    Check and see if it is still within 5% of the OEM rolling circumference difference.

    This is the one I use;

    Use the recommended width calucator to see if those 265 will fit on the rim designed for 245.

    225/45/16 front

    265/40/17 rear ( Can fit on Rim width 0f 9x17 to 10.5x17)

    difference in diameter = 5.75%

    Is this acceptable for the car's ABS/TCS ?
    What's the standard Rim width on the 94+ rear alloys?

    SS, I think the tolerances are up to 5% and within this, it won't affect the TSC and maybe the ABS? Not sure exact size of oem rears 94+? its in the driver's manual, not at home now!
