Is it o.k. To put 195/45R16 tires on my rims when they now have 50R?

Alright to put 45R16 instead of 50R16 tires on my rims which I have now?

    What is the size of the current tires? Are they 195/50-16? Or some other size?

    The 2nd number (45 or 50) is a ratio. It doesn't signify anything by itself, without the other numbers.

    Did you get a good deal? Be sure to come back and share!

    Yes, give us the exact sizes of both choices.

    No!! That would be going down in load carrying capacity and that leads to overload tire failures.
