Question about 1986 Suzuki GSX-R 750 G

2 Answers

Its getting hard to find a good 18 inch tire for my 86 GSXR750. I see where people upgrade to a newer rim like a 91. What all do I need to make this conversion or is this a straight up bolt on?

I got a Parelli sport demon in an 18 for my 89 zx750f and I love it. It doesnt take long to heat up and get sticky, yet it has a hard enough compound that it wont wear out in 3000 miles either. If you google search though, you can find plenty of sport, sport touring, and cruiser tires in an 18.

My 2011 Silverado came with 18 inch aluminum wheels and a 17 inch spare. The dealer tells me that's the way they came from the factory that year. I can't believe their story.

They are right .just like a space saver tire in a car . You also should look and see weather an 18 " rim with tire will fit where the tire is stored.

Wondering if the 18 inch rims from my 85 Yamaha fz 750 will work on my 97 Yamaha Yzf r1000 thunder ace ?? Thunder ace currently 17 inch rims

first u need to get a full outside diameter of the new wheel and tire u plan to use. u also need to measure the total outside diameter of the current rim an tire u are using right now. and u also need to measure the width of tire to make sure there is clearance within the front of the swing arm in the front of the tire.

Sounds like your Rims and Tires are too big. I'm surprised the place that sold them to you didn't tell you those wouldn't fit. Did they at least advise you that the larger tire will through your Speedometer off? If you change the Rim and Tire size you have to change the speed gear in the transmission in order to keep your speedometer accurate.

Will 235/70R/15 tires fit on a 91 ford taurus?

Thats a tall tire but it depends on the size tire/rims that are on it. I have a 91 taurus that has 14 inch rims, the only draw back on taller tires are the fender wells, make sure the tires do not rub the fenders. especially the front, if you put them on, turn the front wheels to the left, then check to feel or see that they do not rub. then turn wheels to the right and recheck for clearance. good luck, if the fit and clear.

Very dull steering feel, wheel stays turned even as i slowly rev

Camber and caster settings are off. Have 4 wheel alignment done by a good shop and save your nice tires. Out of alignment will make steering feel heavy and wear tires fast!

Want to down size the tires on my 2007 Caliber R/T (from 18" to how small can I go ?)

not without a body kit. If it was designed for 18" i wouldn't use anything except for those otherwise you might see other problems start cropping up in the future. As to the price, try a used tire place most of their tires are in pretty good condition and are a lot less than brand new tires.

Took back to store where bought tires and rims. They also put the computer on, but they drove with it attached and the tech who was in passenger seat said left front wheel not calibrated as the others so he calibrated all wheels to .05 at the maximum tire allowance. This has stopped the brakes from grabbing.

Said that the factory had programmed in for 16 inch rims. Jeep came standard with 18 inch.
Now everything working great. Don't know why dealership could not do this properly. Happy I bought tires and rims from a reputable and knowlegeable store. (Tire Craft) Thanks Mike.
