Come spring I'll be wanting to fit tires on the 14x6.5 basketweaves (ET30) I spend the day cleaning up. I've spent some time on a tire size comparator site using the facts in the first post of this thread as the basis.
I think there's enough clearance on the front shock towers to fit 215-60s, can you confirm?
I think the radius would be close enough to stock that I wouldn't lose what little power the M20B20 has to offer and the larger width will ... look cooler without being too non-stock?
Would I have camber issues?
Do I worry too much?
It should just clear the front struts without spacers and won't threaten contacting anywhere else. The problem is finding decent 215/60 tires today.
