Hallo dear
Two jears ago i`ve got the theme Probleme. I can`t find 14" Tires for my Car.
I was bying the second Hand 15" Rims from a 87 Fiero and new Tires.
For the front i use now 205/55 R 15 ( it`s make the car a little bit deeper
at the front ) and for the rear 225/60 R 15.
Im German, and in Germany it`s forbitten to use Biger Sized Tires on lower
sized Rims.
I drive my car every Day (120000 Miles at Gauges) in Sommer and in Winter.
Ive got never problems with the Tires.
The problem with biger rims is, maybe the Speedometer show you a wrong speed.
I tested my rims and Tires on a Test Station with 120 mh. (i need this for
the German DOT)
The result was : My speedometer show`s me now very exactly the speed.
No space for a little bit faster driving at limited streets. From now i watch
my speed every time. A picture or Video from a Police car is very expensive
in Germany.
I hope i was helpful.
Sorry but i havent a EMail adress.
But you can write a Letter if you wont.
