    Guys,.
    I thinks tire manufacturers will have their tire specs for each tire listed. Look at the rolling diameter of the tires you're planning on and try to retain the factory rolling diameter.

    Discount Tire Direct had the error. They told me the ones they sent me would fit. I have the ones from Tire Rack coming today.

    Thank you for reply.
    They fit my 2012 base model CT200h. I got the same ones that Summit has at Discount Tire...they matched Summits lowest on-line price and have free shipping. Make sure you put on the conical lug nuts for these rims ($35 @ Discount Tire).

    My mechanic is the person who tried to put the rims on the car. He said they fit the back but not the front.

    No, I was told that the center ring is not needed for the steel rims...only for the alloys. The alloys load focal point is mostly based upon the center hub/ring, whereas, the steels are based on each individual lug, thus the need for the conical lug nuts. Must be true because I've been driving without the rings for over a week and the ride is as smooth, if not smoother, than the factory tires/wheels with the center rings.

    Strange that the ones from Discount Tire didn't fit...that's actually where I got mine because they matched Summit's lower price and had free shipping. What was wrong with the fit ? Below site are the ones that I got from Discount Tire...are they the same as the ones you're returning? http://www.discounttiredirect.com/di...1&wd=16&rw=6.5
