i have a 88 mx6 turbo i was wandering can i put 18's on it with out any problems. please help send pic. or info please
You had to put spacers on to your rims/tires wouldnt rub. Mine dont rub and I have 205/40/17's. With my Intrax springs the stock wheels would rub in the front fender.I am lucky to not have the front tires rubbing the lower a-arm when turning (thanks to wheel spacers).
How in the hell did you fit 215's in the rear. Do the GT's have rear shocks or struts?? I know 215's wont fit on my car. I can just squeeze my finger in between the rear tire with my 205's. The 4WS have rear struts though.I've got 17's on my '6 and I think they are the perfect size. The 215/45/17's I have are slightly bigger than the stock diameter. They just barely fit in the back, but they do not rub at all!
Rim size is insignificant. It's the overall tire size and diameter that will effect the speedometer. As long as you get the right tires, the speedo should be ok.natedawg191 said:not only harsh, but remember, your spedo is geared with 15s in mind... so your spedo will be behind...
There are some slight differences between the 88-89, 90-92, and 4ws struts. Some have more clearance and some do not (they are all similar MacPhereson strut designs, though). My car does have an unknown brand of aftermarket struts (not stock AAS) so that might give me more clearance. Manifest was able to fit 225/50/15's with 90-92 probe AAS struts. Have you actually tried 215/45/17's on the rear with a 42mm or less offset rim? Or are you just guessing?
