View Full Version : FS: Winter Tires mounted on E30 BottleCaps *Michelin X-Ice*

10-06-2009, 12:50 PM
Looking to sell my rims/tires since I sold my E30 last spring. The tires were used from late January 2009 to end March 2009 (I remember taking them off before Easter).

Tread is about ~90%-95% Michelin X-ice on 14" BottleCaps
tire size: 195/70/14
bolt pattern: 4x100

***Tires are currently mounted on rims and will not part.***

Will also fit older honda/acuras.

The tires are in perfect condition, rims are in ok condition (I think I paid like 80$ for them, so they aren't brand new obviously). Everything is very well balanced and there is no shaking/air leaks or anything.

Will post pictures tonight when I get home from work.

Looking to get 500$ O.B.O since tires are almost brand new.

PM or call 416.930.4632 if interested. Pick up in Mississauga.

bump, just remembered I forgot to mention a bend on the lip of one of the rims. Drove on it like that last year with no problems (no shaking/vibrating, no air loss) I'll take pics tonight for full disclosure... Also, don't message me to part the tires (as I mentioned above) because the rims are only worth about 20$ a piece so you're basically getting them for free with the purchase of tires...

pics of the bend...

70's! Monster Truckin'! haha! JK... A little tall though aren't they?

^lolll, well it is a 14" rim... I believe you also get better grip with a taller tire/sidewall (but more roll in hard cornering)? correct me if im wrong.

10-07-2009, 11:30 PM
Don't know that you get better grip, but yea, more roll in the corner. Just curious as to how well they fit in the wheel arches. My 195/65R14's are a little tall in the arches.

Actually the 70's are not that bad. I have all seasons on mine right now. If they are fresh tires and the tread pattern is good.( good year triple tread ) I bought these because the next size was 185.65.14 and went with the 195.70.14. a little taller doesn't rub in the wheel wells and the roll is a smiggin more noticeable. I find my car drives better with these then the 195/65's. Yes, hard cornering is compromised. We all know lower the better.

Yeah these tires gave the car an extra half inch ground clearance because the car has lowering springs and is running 195/60's. 4x4 style is the way to go for the snow!

Old thread... I know.

My back tires are 185 75 14. lol I'm lowered almost 2" so this gives me much needed ground clearance. Tall thin tires with lots of tread + LSD = I never get stuck. EVER.

I wanted to get these on the front but due to the shape of the inner fenders on the e30 there is a ledge where the trays are under the hood and the fronts were rubbing. I put 195 70 14's on the front.

Tight cornering is not recommended but I still did 20 over + all the way to Valdor Quebec last year with this setup and it works.

Passed a 4wd Audi going uphill in a snowstorm a few days ago. Maybe his car is better but he has way less balls than me that's for sure :) lol
