NO SIR! Not with the metric system...........

I put 285/70R15 & 285/70R16 & 285/70R17 and the tire diameter is different.

Tire Size Calculator

in metric tire sizes the 285 for example is the width of the tire and the second number is the percent of side wall compared to the width so rim size is very important in picking tires and wheels
