Throw em on your stock wheels....


Also Ive got M&H slicks on some keizers and Theyre tubeles. I bought them off a .org member a few months back for about $300, Keep your eye on the for sale threads for wheel/slick combos

How would 195 60 14s work? They want $40 for 2 and they have really good tread. We are going to try to get them for $30. Would they fit on my 14 rim? I would think so but Im just making sure.

I usually run the V rated BF Traction T/A's with a 205/60VR14. They handle great and I don't have to keep swapping them on Fri and Sat nights.... They cost around $80 each for that rating but for a little less you can get the H rated ones.....

They should fit fine. Go for it, if they suck well then sell them for $50.

Yea true. I want to run my car sooo bad I might go saterday. The worst part is the track is about 85 miles away. Would it be much better than my 175s?

Um yeah, wider tires, better grip. That's two bonuses right there. And those are hella cheap, $20 apiece or less? Hell even I'd buy them.

The first number is Millimeters. (195) The second number is a percentage of the first number in relation to the height off the rim. (60) and the R14 is the rim size. Any lettter before the R would be the speed rating in which S is normal, T, H, V,Z. There are some others in there but those are the most common. The speed rating is at what point in a government test the tire reaches a certian speed before losing traction. If it's between a given 2 ratings it goes under the lower of the two for safety reasons. Usually S and T are not listed before the R. ( S is around 115MPH) So you would have 195 mm width by 60% of that being the height off the rim and it mounts onto a 14" rim. It's known as the Aspect Ratio of the tire. I hope this helps.

(If the tire were measured in centimeters then a 195 would be around 2 feet wide...for example a 9mm bullet is almost a 1/4 inch in diameter)
