    tires came today at 1:00pm, and mounted and back in the driveway by 2:00 pm...$40 to mount them, and they seated alright with a blast from a cheatah.. now I got to do some more work to the red Z's rear end, swap the brakes out and add the honda lug adapter. They look like they will fit perfect with the car. On the rears at least, and a pair looks like they might actually last a while...judging from the wear I have on the other ES100's I have and beat on...

    what the 265/50/14's look like on the car...

    [​IMG]

    and they are the same dia as the 245/45/zr16's...so fit should be no proble...unless the spacer is too wide..

    Isn't 245 a bit narrow for an 11inch wide wheel? You could have put 245's on an 8in wheel.

    I would have put 315's on an 11inch wide wheel used spacers and put fender flares on the car.

    wont fit the car in that size...and I don't want the sidewall flex...the car is for drifting...I got plenty of other wheels and tires for driving normal, and for show.

    Im running 235s on a 7.5" rim... And might possibly stretch some 275s on there for next year... Or put them on a 9" wheel...


    Clayton, where can I source some BFG 255/55/14 or close to that for a good price? My boss needs some to replace the G50-14 bias plys on his dune buggy...

    I have a pair of 265/50/14's on some 14x7 datsun wheels...still good thread that I got 3 years ago from tire rack for $100 each. Ebay would be his best bet for oddballed size tires, but sometimes a quick google search will pop out a link for a dealer somewhere.



    And...235's on a 7.5 rim is not a stretch....a 195/45 on a 17x7.5 is a normal tire size for that rim....over that then your bubbling....

    my bubble tires are the 265/50/14's on the 14x7 rims...funky bubble...
