I created this database in January 2017, for a customer who did not liked Year-Make-Model-Trim-Specs because it shows only 1 tire fitment for each car, he asked me to do web scraping from TireSize.com, which shows all tire sizes that each car is offered, standard equipment and optional tires.

TireSize is an easy to scrap website, having all data in HTML format, took about 3 minutes to scrap it with an online scraper, but each time I wanted to update database, I had to spent about 10 hours to manually copy-paste to fill model names on every row, to make database usable.

Number of sales failed to reach 10 per year and the 10 hours of manual work required each update made me to announce in late 2017 that will STOP updating this database and recommend customers to buy other databases like  www.teoalida.com/cardatabase/american/ and www.teoalida.com/cardatabase/wheels-and-tires-size/

In April 2019 a customer contacting me for an unrelated project informed me that is possible to fill rows automatically (www.youtube.com/watch?v=iIKqeaFvltQ) and this allow me to revive the Tire Size database. I also made a scraper for tires by brand beside the tires by vehicle.

List of updates tires by vehicle:
33277 rows – January 2017, TireSize had cars up to model year 2016, meaning that it is lagging in updates for about 1 year.
35136 rows – July 2017, they added 2017 models during spring 2017 but is still lagging in updates because 2018 models are already on the market.
64 makes, 1361 models, 12315 years, 41014 trims – 13 April 2019, no longer lagging, 2020 models are already included.
65 makes, 1412 models, 12863 years, 43614 trims – 22 June 2020, sales been low and about 1 year passed without any customer asking for updates.

List of updates tires by brand:
32 brands, 699 tire models, 18938 tire sizes – 13 April 2019
32 brands, 785 tire models, 21441 tire sizes – 22 June 2020

  1. Hi, are you able to create a database similar to zohr.com? I am currently creating a wix website at the moment and would love a similar format. I have to read how wix database formats work. I do know that I would have to get a daily download from our tire suppliers to make sure counts and prices are accurate. I downloaded your sample tire model excel file, but I didn’t see a product or part number. I could have missed it, but I was thinking that would be the only way to connect your database with theirs. Tell what I would need to get from or what is required. I don’t much about how this works, but know enough about databases to be dangerous. Our current website is not what we will be using in the near future.

      1. I was not comparing TireSize.com to Zohr.com. I was basically asking if I could use it in the same manner as Zohr. I mentioned the part numbers because many of our tire suppliers have part numbers and I was trying to figure out how I could link the information in your database to match the information in their database so that we can get availability and updated pricing.
