I'm in need of new tires. I wrecked an 18" rim and tire. My current 16" impala wheels are just too ugly, I don't like the bolt pattern difference of the charger steelies I have, and the 16" steel set I have has a wrecked wheel. I do have a full set of decent aluminum jeep wrangler rims. And 15" tires are so cheap!
They fit great! Exact hub size, and stick out a 1/4" more. A set of these all cleaned up with some new rubber will look pretty good.
It's a 2.7 car with the smaller brakes. There's enough room to slid my hand between the brakes and the wheel. Jeep wheels have a large inside diameter to clear their knuckles and axles. I want to find a small larger lug tire. The other '99 I'm putting together is going to have a brush guard. These wheels would go good with that
Nothing wrong with small wheels. Godd things come in small packages. Less rim more sidewall equals better ride.
In all reality, these cars are fairly big and mushy. They weren't designed to be sporty. I might call them a cross between economy and, maybe touring? Everyone here has to know and admit, these cars make awesome long distance cruisers. Smooth and fluid at higher speeds.
Good 15" touring tires, or maybe a small truck tire, seems like they'd fit great with a budget.
I just don't need 20s to boost the size of my "ego".
Good things come in small packages. That's NOT what she said.. No? Not funny?? Ok, sorry. I like how the wheels stick out more but I do not like the SIZE of the wheels. Anything under 18" looks too small on LHs and anything over 20" looks too big. IMO. Some LHs can get away with sporting 17''s though.
These are 16" Ford Ranger / Explorer wheels. Their very close to
being flush with the wheel wells. Just my opinion , but I really like how they look.
I've had many a person comment that it looks like a rwd vehicle.
These are 55 series tires so there's a little more space than the std. 60 series.

My car used to have American racing 16x10" wheels for a ranger on it with Goodyear NASCAR tires on it. Previous owner is a huge Mopar guy. He thought it looked great with yellow letter tires on black rock crawler wheels. It did. And they filled out right to the edge of the wheel wells. Wish I kept those wheels instead of putting them on my buddies ranger he wrecked a month later. Some idiot pulled out in front of him when he was doing 50mph. Front rims got taco'd.
