The attached spreadsheet is set up so that anyone can enter a tire size and get the approximate diameter, widths, and recommended rim width. Axle ratios can also be entered and the engine RPM at 60mph is shown, based on the tire size. The engine RPM can also be entered to check speeds, based on axle ratios and tire sizes.
