    Exactly! Just want to know if that fits and doesn’t rub. Would rather functionality over aesthetics.

    205x65x14 is .2in difference over 195x70x14. Does it make a difference? Assuming I can get availability. Or just stick to 70 profile F and R... or am I getting into a tiz over nothing. Just want to get it right.

    I need to replace my old Michelins (20 years old) with something a bit newer and softer and the guy at the local tyre place I've been going for years says 185 are a lot cheaper than the 195 ones on there at present. So I might go with them, I think they are the Uniroyals. My car never moves anyway so the point is moot at best ...

    They could be van tyres though ... but they have a less modern style tread - think they're about £65 a corner.

    I think 195 would be perfect on a 7j rim.

    Didn't Nissan put 185s on their 260Zs using 5.5j rims ? So 195 would be 'stretched' on 7s ?
    205s ?

    I had 205's on 6.5j wolfies and they were 'podgy' definitely not stretched.

    I used 195 on 6.5 rims all the time for my trackdays. 55 profile so it lowered the gearing which for the track was fine.

    I'm thinking 205 might be a good size for 7" - the profile needs consideration too, the higher the profile the more tolerance on width I would think.

    A nice 225/60x14 is perfect on a 7" wheel and almost exactly the same diameter as the original tyre/wheel combination.

    No, they sit just over slightly square with a 65/70 profile.

    This is where I am at too.
    Love the radial diff idea!

    Will it rub?
    I don’t want to roll any of the arches unless necessary
