How do I find out what size tires I need?

Is it OK to have 2 different size tires?
Long story short: Yes, it is a problem to have two tires of different sizes on the front (or back) of your car. Having two different–sized tires on the same axle is generally not a good thing. This is why, when your tires (on the same axle) wear unevenly, you still need to buy two tires instead of just one.

Can you drive with one tire bigger than the other?
A: The mismatched tire is a dangerous situation. It should be replaced with the proper size immediately. Mis-sized rear tires can lead to a loss of control under hard braking (the car can spin). The one tire left on the car is almost an inch smaller in diameter.
Can wider tires fit on same rim?
As a general rule of thumb, it’s safe to fit a tire up to 20 millimeters wider than stock on the original rim. The actual width of the tire will vary depending on the width of the rim: The tire will expand 5 millimeters for every half inch (12.5 millimeters) increase in rim width.
Are mismatched tires a problem?
The big problem with mismatched tires is that they are often a sign of a seller who takes poor care of his car. If the tires are different sizes then they may also wear at different rates, and you’ll be shopping for new tires sooner than you think. Functionally, mismatched tires will wear out at different rates.

Does changing tire size affect abs?
The reason: the diameter of the tires affects how the wheel speed sensors read, which affects the operation of the ABS and traction control systems. Installing different-sized tires in the front and rear can also impact the operation of antilock brakes. That will lead to premature tire wear and poor handling.
