Well guys hate to say it but I sold her. BB gone..
NO! I loved your build dude...What're you driving now?
True, and these are Wal-Mart Goodyears...I have the 99 OEM Miata 14" alloys...and I'd like to keep them...but idk how to figure out the widest width I can run with said wheels.
I wouldn't go wider than 195s. something like 195/60/14 would be close to your original size of 185/65/14 so the speedo will be accurate.
Oh boy Shake, I didn't see that coming!
Are you going to get another Escort or getting out of the business?
Find of the width of said wheels, it should be stamped on the back of them. Then, go to tirerack.com and look up the specs for a tire in the size you want. There will be a specified minimum and maximum rim width for every tire. Stay within that spec and you should be good.
I had to do the same thing with mine back in 2013. It still looked really good but there was a lot of rust underneath and it was about to need quite a bit of stuff replaced so it was a good time to let her go. I would like another to mess around with though. They are ridiculously simple cars and very easy to work on.
I loved it too. I drive a pair of Vans atm.
I def want a 2nd gen someday but it probably will not be my next car. I still have parts, I pulled the 21mm RSB and rear disc brakes off. But I wont lie Ive been dream about an FC Rx7 or something with a 7.3 powerstroke.
Yeah, it just made sense financially. Just to have it shipped out of Alaska is a min $2500. A clean title BB's for $1200, with a recon title; not worth it.
Driving it out of state was another option but seemed too risky. What if it drops a seat, breaks down, ect? I lose. Could it drive 2k miles through Canada? Prob, but do I want to drive a loud ass car 2k miles? Hell no.
I got $900 and she lives on; I'm happy.
Hopefully the new owner will take care of it and come here for any issues.
I hope you stick around on here
