I have a 95 G20 with stock wheels/tires, size 195/60/14. I really want to upgrade to the P11 wheels, and would prefer to buy them with tires. Most of the p11 wheels for sale have 195/65/15, and some have 195/60/15.

I have examined the rear suspension closely, and am concerned about rubbing the lower part of the spring with these larger diameter tires. The clearance is already minimal with my stock setup. Has anyone ran these larger tires on an older G20?

Thanks for your help.

you should be ok with the 195/60/15,but check with a tyre shop first and ask them to see what the rolling radious is with the 14's and 15's.If the 195/60/15 is to big go with a 195/50 15.

195/65R14 cross fit

My G20 touring has the factory size 195/65R14 tires. These are even taller than your 195/60 and, of course, do not rub. 15" upgrade sizes would be ideally 205/55R15 (2.9% taller than yours but .9% smaller than my 14") or 195/55R15 (1% taller than your 14's but 2.2% smaller than mine). FYI: 195/65R15 is 7.6% taller than you 14" so it may well rub. the 195/60R15 is only 1% taller than my 14's, so I would assume it would clear.

I use my EXCEL spreadsheet tire size calculator for the above numbers. If anyone wants it, leave your e-mail and I'll send it to all. See high school kids, math does come in handy.

Why not a 205/50/15 that's a pretty common size, there are a ton of tires available in that size, and it's very close to stock. There are a TON of performance tires to choose from in that size.

I'd go with the 195/60R15s, since they'll be closer to stock. I myself have 205/55R15s, which have held up pretty well. :)

I realize the size differences and such, what I am really concerned about is the tires actually fitting. I am trying to buy the wheels with size 195/60/15 already mounted on them, even though I will eventually put 195/55/15 on the car.

Has anyone ran these size tire on an older P10-1993. The suspention is really close to the top of my tire, even at 195/60/14. My real concern is that a larger tire will rub the suspention. I do not know if the suspention was modified when the 1993.5 came out, but I know that larger tires were used after that point.

Thanks for the help.

OIC. In that case the wheel offset becomes a factor as well. The tire size listed above shouldn't be a problem as long as the offset of the wheel is +/- 3 mm from the 45mm offset. Have you checked www.tires.com yet? They have a list of rims with the offsets for the G.

I believe that the P11 Wheels actually have an offset of 38mm, does that bring the wheel further outside, or closer into the wheel well?

I think I might be better off if it is actually a bit further out, since there is so little clearance in there right now.

Does anybody know?

Thanks

I was curious about my speedo being on target or off... and I borrowed this handy GPS thing that tells you the speed at which you are traveling... go figure it was dead on with what the speedo told me so I am happy with the 195 60 15s on my p10!
