Joe AndrewsI need to get some new tires for my 93 Dodge Dakota club cab but am having trouble figuring out the size I need. I bought it used and the tires on it now are 20575R15s. My speedometer runs about 6-8mph fast(at 60, it says 67) so I thought I might to go a bit larger on the tire. The spare looks original, not used, and is a 21575R15. What confused me is the sticker on the door says 19575R15, which I think is smaller that what's on there now. Any insight from anyone here?
wjm1I have been shoping for tires for a 1994 Dodge Dakota club cab 2x4. (If anyone has any particular recomendations I would be interested in hearing them.) My situation is about the same. I am currently running P225/75R15 with no ill effect and I am planning on going up to 235/75R15 for a tad beefier look and hopefully a little smoother ride.

If your speedo is registering a little slow I would suspect that P215/75R15 was your orriginal size. Even if it wasn't you should be able to run anything from P195/75R15 to P235/75R15 without any ill effect.

You may want to talk with your dealer, I think they can tell you what was on the car based on the VIN.

I probably didn't help you much but good luck on your search.

wjm1Just a brief follow up:

I installed LT235/75R15 on my 94 Dodge Dakota Club Cab 2x4. When at full wheel lock they do rub the front inner splash apron a little bit. According to tire racks site the size was an option on the 2wd Dakota. My Dodge Dealer Service Center says that it shouldn't be a problem to keep them as long as they aren't rubbing on the fenders, just be careful not to turn the wheel to full lock left or right. He also said that based on the vin number the truck was shipped with P215's. Hope this info is helpful
