you can compare up to 4 wheel sizes at once, view wheels sizes that will fit and has nice side by side comparison of other stats!

i am not sure what you mean eviljack - it gives you the available range of rim width sizes that fit each tire being compared.

Ok sorry I will clarify a bit. It asks you to pick TIRE sizes and comare them. Then gives you the info about the tire and the potential rim widths and such.

The issue I have with it is your comparing your tire and seeing what rim sizes work with it. Kinda backwards for my taste. I like to pick my rims that will work on my vehical and then find out what tire sizes work.
