The practical approach would be to get a set of wheels from some other Chrysler (Fiat) product with the same bolt circle as your current one. You should be absolutely sure that there will be no interference in a tight turn or under extreme driving conditions. Also be sure that larger tires will not have a fatter profile that could cause interference.

Can a 86 toyota tercel wagon 4wd handle 235x60x14 tires with a 1.5 engine?


Rather than going to taller 13" tires, I highly recommend going to lower profile 14" tires and allow wheels. Taller 13" tires would make the handling really squishy and soft. The stiffer tires will improve handling, and the lighterweight wheels could improve economy slightly, espcially with some quality road tires (no aggressive tread snow tires, that will drop economy).


I also support the 14" wheels w/ 185/60 tires. but, if you really want to try bigger tires to keep hwy RPMs down, i would try 15" wheels with lower profile tires. that way you don't sacrifice handling for hwy RPMs. i used to run 185/80R13 and just got a slight bit of rub on full steering lock so i just looked at a comparable 15" tire--looks like 195/60R15 would be pretty close.

The only other thing i would suggest is swapping the trans and diffs with the old 3.73 final gear ratio trans/diffs of the '83/'84s. i drove one for a day and the RPMs at hwy speeds were around 2500-2600. some folks find these old transmissions sluggish on acceleration but i honestly didn't even notice a difference. i rarely drive fast though. anyway, i don't think i would do it because what with your trans having such low miles on it, it seems like it would be a waste to swap it out. if you can do it relatively easily, it might be worth it as an experiment i suppose.



Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

Hard to handle when idling slow


Hi Anonymous, and the usual suspects are:
1. Improperly loaded motorcycle. Non standard equipment on the front end such asheavy radio receivers, extra lightning equipment or luggage tends to cause unstable handling.
2. Incorrect air suspension pressure.
3. Damaged tire(s) or improper front-rear tire combination
4. Irregular or peaked front tire tread wear.
5. Incorrect tire pressure.
6. Shock absorber not functioning normally.
7. Loose wheel axle nuts.
8. Excessive wheel hub bearing play.
9. Improper vehicle alignment.
10.Steering head bearings improperly adjusted.
11. Tire and wheel unbalanced.
12. Rims and tires out of round or eccentric with hub.
13. Rims and tires out-of-true sideways.
14. Shock absorber improperly adjusted.
15. Worn engine stabilizer links.
16. Damaged rear engine isolation mounts.
17. Swing arm pivot shaft nut improperly tightened or assembled.
Good luck and have nice day

Hello I have a Nissan maxima 97 model with tyres dimension: P205/65R15 with 5 bolts... My Question? would the tyres KUMHO 352 with rims diameter"16 fits fits on them? please help ty


U need to work on your question a little I think are you asking if 16 inch wheels and tires will fit your Nissan or are you asking if 16 inch tires will hold air on a rim with a 1/2 inch gap between the two? I f you are putting 16 inch wheelson are they uni lug?What were thewheels made for?
do they have the same back spacing do u have the right lug nutts for the wheels and car? Are your lug studs long enough.
There is alott of things that could be different when you change a wheel. Other than height clearance.

2004 uneven rear tire wear,mitsubishi endeavor. The outside edge of like new ( 3-4 months old ) rear tires is almost worn to the wear bar.I only recently noticed the uneven tire wear. I had a 4 wheel...


Definately an alignment issue. May even be something damaged. Need to find out as you may have a pre-existing condition that you can take back to where you purchsed this vehicle.

Will a 165 70 R13 or 175 70 R13 tire fit on a 92 Festiva, with the right wheels, without interference?


That is a nice, medium profile tire. The outside diameter of the tire should fit - but your wheel offset could get you... that is the only concern that I would have - and only on the front!!

I have a 1999 chevy tahoe its not a 4 wheel drive. i just recently installed 22inch wheels and tires. when a make wide turns they rubb in the front. what do i need to do?


Wheels are to wide. Trim the valance like I did, see if spacers help, or depending on how much they rub, if it's hitting plastic not metal just wait till your tires wear down just enough to clear. Every time I get new tires (305/70r16) they rub slightly on the plastic when I go up/down curb into driveway and bounce. I have a three-inch body lift too. I have the widest tires that basically fit (11.5 in or so) on a 99 Tahoe with 3"inch lift. They wear slightly and the rubbing stops. My wheels have stock offset. You may need a steering stabilizer if your truck doesn't have one already and those big heavy wheels will make the ride worse and potentially affect your steering components negatively. The steering knuckles are easy to wear out with long-term vibration.

My answer:

Believe it or not HFT (Harbor Freight Tools), which has local outlet stores in most big cities and is online as well (not sure where you are located), has a ton of various mountable tire/wheel assys in stock.

Some are swivel plate mounted - some are fixed plate type - and some wheels are just stand alone for axle-thru type mounted shafts of various diameters.

They even have a 13HP Genset wheel kit p/n 94192 for $24.99 online, and possibly the same price in-store if they indeed do stock it in-store. You just have to call a local HFT store and find out.

Prices can't be beat, and even though most everything there is made in China they do have some pretty good stuff there.

There is one other alternative if they don't have it in-store, and you really want to save a few bucks.

You yourself can make the same wheel kit set-up for under $15 if you are handy with metal working, and have a metal supply house near you.

If your Genset frame already has the axle hole plates welded onto the frame like I believe they all do today - then just buy the steel axle rod in whatever diameter rod is needed, and whatever length you need to clear the frame plus the added 2 wheels with 2 washers and 2 clearance bushings, and then just drill 2 cotter pin centered holes (1 on each end of the axle), and it's a done deal - all except for attaching any old metal type handle assy from maybe some old discarded gardening implement or possibly an older metal handled snow shovel for example. Just cut it down to size, bend according to fit the frame and bolt it on with 2 sturdy nut/bolt & lock washer assys. Done deal!!!

Just buy the 2 wheels anywhere that sells them cheaply, or else hunt some used ones down at a garage sale or thrift store maybe.

I made my own wheel kit setup on my own personal 5500W 10HP Generac Genset, and used the HFT pneumatic 10" tires when they were on sale for 1/2 price at $3 each. Axle rod - cotter pins (2) - washers (6) - axle spacer bushings (2) - custom hand made recycled handle & misc nut/bolt hardware all cost me under $10.

Labor cost - PRICELESS!

Please post me a reply as to finding this solution being the best resolve to your wheel kit problem there by following my recommendations above. Also please rate my troubleshooting fix as well.

Keep me posted and I'll follow up as well.

Best regards,

Frank
