Standard tyres

What's the difference between size 205/60/15 and 205/65/15?

If your car uses 205/65/15, going down to a 60 aspect ratio would fit fine, but the overall circumference of the tyre would be less, so your speedo reading would be out.

ATTN ILS

Thanks ILS,

So is the tyre that is standard for the EA the 205/65/15? I'm on a budget and I have all round 225/65/15's on my car on 7" mags and all are bald and only can afford $90 for one tyre at this stage not some whooping $180 for some 235mm sized tyre.

I'll find some 6 inch rims to suit the size 205 mm tyres... can 6 inch mags/alloys be found for cheap? Like $30 per wheel?

Phil

Re: ATTN ILS

I haven't heard of mags that cheap - if you are on a budget, I'd recommend steel wheels. Maybe a member might have old steel wheels you can have cheaply?

Re: wheels

That's great CATman, whereabouts do you reside? Around Brisbane? If so, I'd be happy to grab the EL rims for $20 ea... only if they're 15 x6" in size.

re.

I've been looking around for interceptors for my ford, because I'm either gonna get them or a set of Fairmont Ghia style mags on my car.

Neway, ford interceptors or twice as hard to find than interceptors that fit holdens, and the cheapest i've found them for is around $50 each (brand new). And you have to paint them silver urself too..

It's cheaper to buy a set of ghia mags second hand, with tyres for around $350 i reckon.

I guess I'll just have to try my luck at the wreckers, CATman hasn't replied to my message about his dad's sale of EL rims.

It can be a pain in the arse... having to pay appx 350 to 400 buckaroos on tyre replacements when it can be paid for the rego.

cheapies

go to the wreckers and get some plain wheels for the time being. you might find it hard getting them with tyres because they probably go to the second hand tyre places, but you may

that said, try the second hand tyre places. 205/65/15 are a very popular size for larger cars and shouldn't be hard to find. i found some the other day cos i just got newies on the front, but they didn't quite have the amount of tread i wanted - they were $55 each, for yokohamas.

for me they would only have lasted a couple of months i'd say, so i turned 'em back. that was in townsville, you should have heaps more luck in brisbane.
