What is the best size tire for an 81 with 14 inch mags? I've been running 195 70. Is this the largest tire I can run w/o rubbing the wheel well? What about these new low profile tire sizes?
Thanks

That is strange----------14 inch mags on an 81
Maybe it is the fact that I have a turbo. My car originally had 15's on it. I went to an aftermarket rim from the stock puppies. I am currently running 225 60R15 tires on the 15 inch rims. If you stay with the 14 inch rims you will want to stay with a 70 series tire to fill the wheel well. If you goto a 15 goto a 60 series. If you can get hold of a set of 16 inch rims goto a 50 series.

turbo models were equipped w/ 15 inch rims, non-turbo w/14. I currently run 215/60/14 on my coupe and 2 + 2. They are very similar in size to the original 205/70/14, but fill the fenders better.
