On the Internet you can find information and so-called non-standard size suitable to the car model drives. But if you're a beginner-enthusiast, stick to buying discs of standard sizes.
Pick up the rubber to the discs easier. Although it would be better not to pick up the tires to the rims, and the focus vehicle. This will also help reference information from the instruction manual. In addition to the radius, the tyres are different width profile of the balloon and ratio of the profile height to width (e.g., 175/65). For each car it is better to buy the tires appropriate characteristics recommended by the manufacturers of vehicles.
