#6 of 31 Cadillac SRX Tires and Wheels
Jul 25, 2007 (5:36 pm)
I own an 2005 SRX with 18 inch wheels...I too wanted the 255s all around........the 255s fit in front no problem...
The dealer did not recommend as it would put unnecessary stress on the front end and may cause hydroplaning in extreme conditions.......and if 255s in front caused any damage or premature wear the warranty would not cover...
For winter I put 235s all around.....no problem......
I am looking for a set of 2006 2007 SRX 18 inch wheels...
#7 of 31 Cadillac SRX Tire rotation
Sep 04, 2007 (11:43 am)
I took my srx into have it serviced and they rotated my tires!(tires rubbed on front fender) The next time I took it in they were going to rotate my tires but told me they couldn't because they are different sizes! Next day I went back and asked if tires were in their right position? They weren't. Could this cause damage to my car?

I had assumed that prior to 2007 the 255 tires were too wide to fit in front. My guess is that any damage would be visible, but your tires may have been damaged more that the fenders. You should have 235/60 tires on the front wheels and 255/55 tires on the rear wheels.
I have the 20 inch wheels that come with 255/50 tires on all 4 wheels. The turning circle is still just under 40 feet, so I don't know what has changed.
#9 of 31 20" WHEELS I can't win
Sep 30, 2007 (3:56 am)
I bought a 2004 SRX new. I included the 20" wheel package, boy, what a mistake. 6 months later the chrome was peeling off, so the dealer replaces all four. Now, 3 years later the chrome is peeling off again. Note, they are constantly being cleaned and waxed. I brought my SRX back to the dealer with a clicking noise when I would make a turn. It was discovered that one of the spokes was cracked! Ready for this, I was told that the company who made the wheels is no longer in business!!!!! Any ideas of what I could do with my dealer? Am I stuck buying all new wheels, out-of-pocket????

The 20 inch wheels are a new for 2007 option. The 2004, 2005 and 2006 models only offered 18 inch wheels. I don't know what kind of warranty the wheel dealer included, but these wheels probably could invalidate the Cadillac warranty if they cause any damage to your SRX.

The two tire sizes are identical in diameter - this was critical for AWD vehicles. You can use all 4 235/65 tires. The load capacity exceeds the design loads as listed on the door placard. It will not affect any components of the car. The larger rear tire was used for aesthetic purposes.
#12 of 31 Premature tire wear
Apr 28, 2008 (11:44 am)
2006 SRX, 32000 mi, my right front tire outside edge has tremendous wear. Left side is normal wear. Am I looking at an allignment problem? Is it under warranty?
#13 of 31 2005 SRX Tire problems
Jul 18, 2008 (4:13 pm)
Since the first week I owned my 2005 SRX (now 40,000 miles) I have had problems with low tire pressure in the left rear tire. First shop visit said there was a pin hole in the tire and it had to be replaced (never believed them). Consistently since then I have lived with low tire pressure messages. The sensor has been replaced and the bead seal redone. I've been asked to "monitor it" and the tire has been remounted. Just this week I had two new tires put on the rear because the tire pressure said it was down to 10. There was a small piece of metal near the rim so the tire had to be replaced. This was two days ago. Tonight I get in the car and the tire pressure was down to 17. I'm beginning to think its the rim. Has this been a problem for anyone?
#15 of 31 air pressure
Jun 22, 2009 (12:36 pm)
both my srx's have not held tire pressure well.
I bought my '07 july 30, 2007 and took it on the tail of the dragon october 10, 2007 with only 2200 miles on it, and found it after i ran the road at high speeds that i only had 26lbs of air in the tires.
couldn't figure out why it felt more floppy than my '04 did, thought it was the ultraview taking structure out of the car vs. my '04 base with solid roof.
i also think i have an out of round rear wheel. both of my srxs have a vibration at high speeds. steering wheel doesn't shake so that means the issue is in the rear of the car.
