Question about 1988 Buick Century

I was told that I needed 195/75 R14 instead of that 185/75 R14 already on in order to do a front-end alingment

    the 185/75 R 14 that are on my car are the right size according to the manufacture, why would I need the 195/75 R 14 on my car in order to get a front alingment done?

Not true if the car came with 185"s the 195" may be an optional size you can use on the car,they maybe trying to get you spend more money,GM usually has a sticker on the drivers door stating the size of tire on the car ,maybe go to another mechanic?

Tire size has nothing to do with an alignment. Although the 195.75r14 ride better. I would take it to a place that specializes in wheel alignment and not the **** that you went to.

Tires for 2001 Hyundai Accent R14


My 2002 Accent has the original rims which are R14 rather than the R13 specified in the owner's manual. Yet my speedometer is factory calibrated and gives the correct speed readings at all speeds (compared to my GPS navigator's indicated speed). I suspect that R14 is correct for your car and that Hyundai forgot to update the owner's manual.
