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.
