Hi people, just brought some cheap 13s that fit my indy.
The tyres on them are 185/70/13
They look way to chunky and foul on the mudguards
What would my best bet be? 185/50/13?
Or can I increase to say 195/50/13? Or the other way 170/50/13?
185/60/13 and 205/60/13 sre the common sizes I think? Can't remember as I have 15's at the moment.
15" will give you a wider choice of sizes and makes for road use
If your sticking with 13" go 185/60
Cheers guys. It's currently got 15s on it, but I think the car looks abit strange on large rims. I think smaller 13s would suit the kit car image
It kind of reminds me of a ghetto cadalac on 22inch rims! I prefer the more go kart look.
What would changing wheel size do? Bearing in mind the wheels are thinner but I think lighter because of this?
My car has 185/60/13 and 205/60/13 on, and seems fine
I did have 13/60/205 on the front, and that was overkill, and too wide a tyre for such a light car
plus 13"s imho look so much better than 15"
May need to check speedo calibration if the diameter is different to what you set it up on.
www.willtheyfit.com can be used to compare wheel/tyre combinations to see what the diffrence is in diameter and therefore what the speedo indicated speed difference is.
Sounds like the offset is wrong for the Indy if they foul the rear arches. should be ET38-40
185/60 13s have a very similar rolling radius to 195/50 15s.
