PostSubject: New Rims on the 86   Sat Jul 20, 2013 9:13 pm

I've been looking for the stock GTS rims for my SR5 for 2 years without any luck. And now it's almost time to get new tires. I picked up these Keystones from a guy upsizing from 14's on his 280z. (I'm just laying them against the car. I need to clean them up and put new tires on.)



Question. These are 215-60-R14's. The old GTS are 185/60/R14's I believe. Is that the size I should go with on new tires?

185/60/R14's is what I would go with or somewhere closer to that size, but those will look good

Those tires are much too big. 185 or 195/60/14 is where it's at. Those will look great though, I've always like the Western Hurricanes or Keystone or whoever made them lol, so many copies...

Aside from other work I had my new 195/60-14s mounted on celica supra wheels and I'm super happy with the fitment. I'll get a picture one of these days.

I was thinking 185's would be a sure shot, since they were a stock offering. But 195's would be nice too because the extra diameter would compensate some for Toyota's "going slower than the speedometer says" issue. Just not sure with the extra width of these rims how much would fit under the fenders.

It's 10mm of width, and an additional 6mm of overall height (aspect ratio is 60 so 60& of 10 is 6) you really won't see much of a difference unless they are side by side. Get whichever is cheaper and easier to find.

I stopped buying anything other than Michelins. Too much experience on my side.
Same reason I stopped buying anything other than Toyota.

195-60-R14 fits diameter-wise real nice, but these rims stick out too far for PA inspection.
Back to 13's until I can find some 14's closer to GTS rims.
Unhappy day.  Crying or Very sad
