These photos illustrate the difference even a minor change in size can create. Both tires are Falken Ziex ZE-502s; the front tire is a 245/50R16 and the rear is a 235/55R16. The 245 tire is 9.64 inches wide by 25.65 inches tall. The 235 tire is 5/8 inch narrower (9.25 inches wide) and about 1/2 taller (26.18 inches) but looks much skinnier and taller when compared side-by-side.
