New Tires

Hello,
I just had new tires installed 19.5 and was wondering if this is normal?
Thx in advance.

Just measured my visible gray rim section and it is about 1/8" from tire to simulator.

Almost looks like a 16" tire spooned onto a 16.5" wheel. Hard to say through a photo.

Did I hear my name?


The tire bead looks fine. On a 19.5, if it wasn't seated right, you'd probably know when you drove it. LOL


What I am viewing just seems to be the covers, and where they butt up against the wheels bead flange.


The two different members pics are really apples and oranges and they don't seem to be the same brand...also the OP is from his front wheel, where the 2nd member is a rear wheel.


Different wheel covers, actually can cover more or less of the wheel. Could you notice the steel wheel flange where it meets the wheel cover before you replaced the tires?

Thank you Sir.

I know some LT tires look much different in rim coverage. ďBead protectorsĒ
