245/60R14 is the largest you can stuff on the stock 14X7 supra rims without the problem of proper contact patch... if you have seen my car the VMP last Battle of the Imports.... I am running a Indy Profile S/S G60-14 which is a 255/60-14 tire... it is made by Mickey Thompsons... and it is a Street/Strip tire that is DOT approved... it is a pretty soft tire specially ones you burn it off before running the track... pretty sticky once hot and it has the same compound as the Mickey Thompson slick tires.... but for daily driving... I wouldn't recommend this tire for the wear sucks due to soft of a tire...

note... 255/60-14 is a bit too large for the 14X7 supra rims and I have to run 20 psi on it to make a better contact patch and greater use on the track

I ran 225/60-14 on the stock rims. Once ran 245/45-16 on 16s and now run 245/40-17 on 17s.

When I get my 18s finished I will try running 265/35-18.

I wonder if bigger would fit? Nothing bigger than 265 or 285....

P-Type Wheels: 225/60/14 Yokohama A509's (FINALLY took off the old A509's & put 2 of the new/used ones on 2 of my wheels. Need to take the other 2 wheels in for refinishing).

Compomotive CXN's 245/45/16 Yokohama AVS Intermediate's (my summer wheels).

The Silver Slug MKI is running 195/70/14 BFG Radial TA Whiteletters on the stock MKI aluminum wheels.

I run the same size tires on all 4 wheels, not just the back 2.

Thanks for all the replies, guys. I am primarily interested in looks. It would be great to get the same BULGE look in the rear as on the fronts.

For those of you running 245/45/16s on the front what offset and width wheels are you running. That's the size I've been looking at but don't want any rubbing so I need to make sure I get the right offset. Any help is appreciated.

Darin:

You can run 16x8 with 0mm to +10mm offsets up front
For the rear 0mm to -10mm is ok visually. +10 to -10 is doable without rubbing.

I have BFGoodrich T/A's 265/50/14 on the rear and 245/50/14 on the front on my stock 14" Rims - both sizes fit well. They have the name "BFGoodrich" in white writing on the side of the tyre. Very chunky tyres, look mean, very fat, but don't handle so good on wet roads...definitely not for the faint of heart come winter time! :wink:

Hey Nights,

Where and how much were the 265s? That's some serious rubber for stock wheels?

cheers,

Justin

Hiya Justin!

Great to see a fellow Perthie on here...suddenly I feel less alone. :)

Unfortunately I don't know where the tyres were bought or even how much they cost...they came with the car when I bought it. :( I'm not even sure if you can still buy them and I suspect they wouldn't be cheap given the size and all...I haven't seen them around.

They are very serious rubber for the stock rims. It's amazing though, they fit perfectly even though they look chunky. The back of the car is raised a bit from the size of the rear tyres...looks cool though...lol.

Where is the W.A MK2 Mailing list located? I will join up... 8)
