I was looking at picking up a set of rims for my 91 teg, only thing is the car is off the road for the winter and well dont really have access to it to test fit the rims on the car first before I buy them. So I was wondering would these specs fit a 91 teg, offset 40mm, tire size 215/40/17? The car is lowered 1.7" does anyone know if they would fit?
Ok thanks for th quick response.
woah…what’s the lug pattern? I’m hoping 4 lug universal?
Sorry, 4x100 * 4x114, same as my 15" rims I have now.
so 4 lug universal…
in that case… enjoy and post pics!
Yea, could not think up the word universal at the time I posted lol.
ill sell you mine if you want them theyre 18s???
Hmm shipping from Iowa eh? What ya got and how much haha.
stay with 17’s…i think they look classier and 18 look too outta place…and theyll most likely fuck with ur speedo
Yea thats the otherthing, how bad is the speedo affected with the different sized rims?
i dont know. theyre not even mounted. white92LS531- thanks for your support!!! NOT. anyways, 900 shipped OBO and heres the link to them. http://www.g2ic.com/forums/showthread.php?p=1038107#post1038107
make me an offer. and ill let you know.
it’s not the rim size… it’s the tire size.
Go to articles> Info> Tire size calculator
that’ll help you get the right size tire
how much of a difference is there between a 215/35 and a 215/40. because people keep telling me my car will be slower because of how much bigger my rim is. but if the rim is smaller, shouldn’t it be the same? because if 35-40=1 inch. and i have 18s and they have 17s, wouldn’t it be the same??? also compared to a 195/60 ???
the first number 215 for example is the width 215 mm
the second yours is a 35 is the aspect ratio of the first number
215 times 35% = the hieght of the tire in millimeters
hth i will look for a site i found a while back to help
try this link http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tiretech/general/size.jsp
heres another http://www.powerdog.com/tiresize.cgi
and another http://www.deepstaged.net/tire_tech.htm
and one more http://auto.howstuffworks.com/tire2.htm
someone should put these in the archive for easy access for future references
also make sure that your tires are at least V rated (stiff tires)… I’m not sure if there’s 215/35 that aren’t V rated.
no offense, and thank you white_teggy for responding, but GO CHECK!
It’s an INTEGRA TIRE SIZE CALCULATOR
I gave you the link, why’d you ask what you could have found out with a few clicks?
i would have but im not a member there yet, and you have to be registered to go to any of the links. thanks for the info though.
“V” has nothing to do with how stiff the tire is, thats the speed rating
Speed ratings are certified maximum sustained speed designations assigned to passenger car radials and high performance tires. Because of the evolution of high-speed passenger car travel, it was necessary to establish a way to rate a tire’s high-speed capability. In the U.S., these ratings are based on tire testing in laboratory conditions under simulated loads (European testing uses actual road testing). For a tire to be speed rated by the U.S. Government, it must meet certain minimum government standards for reaching and sustaining that specified speed. Domestically, high performance tires must be speed rated. The tire industry defines high performance tires as those with speed symbols of “S” or greater and aspect ratios of 70 or lower. Yokohama goes one step further and defines high performance tires with a speed symbol of “H, V, W, Y,” or “Z” and an aspect ratio of 70 or less (typically, 60 or less). Conventional passenger car radials need only meet the minimum Department of Transportation standard of 85 mph. Speed symbols may currently be marked on a tire in any of three ways: 205/60ZR15; 205/60ZR15 89W; or 205/60R15 89W. The International Standard Organization system (ISO) currently serves as a worldwide standard for tire markings. At the end of a transition period, any speed symbol denoting a fixed maximum speed capability will be at the end of the service description following the tire marking (illustrated in the second and third examples above).
*z rating refers to open ended speed capability.
Speed ratings apply only to the tire, not to the vehicle. Putting a speed rated tire on any car does not mean the car can be operated at the tire’s rated speed.
All of the info came from the HowStuffWorks link i gave in my previous post
not like it’s hard…
and no you do NOT need to be registered.
I just went on the site, didn’t sign in, and was still able to view the article.
jesus if it bothers you that much, use mine:
