Default What are the tire size measurements for an 05 Acura RSX Type S?

When I bought the car, it had P215/45 R17, but I'm trying to purchase some new ones, and the guy is telling me that its suppose to have P225/45 R17.. Whats the difference anyway?

You can always contact the Consumer Affairs department of a tire manufacturer, for example Yokohama, and they will coach you thru making the best tire choice for your specific driving style and needs, depending on your vehicle. I am sure all tire manufactures offer this service, but I am familiar with Yokohama's and they are extremely helpfull.1-800-722-9888 (option #2) Monday through Friday 6:00am – 5:00pm Pacific Standard time
