quick wheel question

Alrighty 15 inch tires came stock on my 06 spectra, I just bought 16 inch wheels for the car. My question is am I going to have to do an ailgnement or camber adjustment so there is no uneven wear on the tires. I was thinking because the car also came stock with 16s that no adjustment would be needed.


You can see size, but not strength.

I think you are right, no adjustments are needed.

not a bad idea to have it checked. if you check the alignment with 15" wheels, then check it with the 16's on it without making any adjustments, you might be surprised to see that they may change.

You will be just fine. As long as you do not alter the suspension. I went from the stock 15's on my 06 Spectra to 17's and it was fine.
