I am trying to find a set of tires that will fit onto my 92 egt. I cant find a gt in the junk yard with tires and since the ones that are on the lx´s dont fit i was wondering what other cars would have stock rims that would fit on my car.
hey egtdude.just to let you know i tried to fit aftermarket rims from an accord on to my escort and they didn´t fit. So i found only some honds rims fit on the scort. I think it´s just the civics that work. Havn´t tried yet though. Mine came with what you could consider street slicks. There fun to have in the rain. I think there good year eagles. Whatever they are shot and my inspections coming up. I found theese nice TSW rims but I don´t want to run them in the winter but i need tires. So I am perplexed as to what to do , i don´t want to buy tires now and then rims with more tires in the spring.
"So I went to 17x7´s and now I can get Falkens, Kumho´s or Yokohama´s for like 110 a tire."
Blade...you have 17 inch rims on your car? that means your rolling stock has got to be 18", that should effectively make your gearing taller, making it slightly harder to rev. Also, are they heavier than the stock EGT 15s? if so that would also bog down your times. I´ve also heard that when you roll a larger diameter, your speedometer gets off, that from my old high school autos teacher.
Is any of this babbling worth your time reading it? or am I remembering and blowing lots of smoke?
I´m just curious here, cause I´d like to go to 16" rims. I´d like to get some Enkei rims, but i can´t find the kind i chose a few months ago...although I´m liking these 16x7 Milla Miglia HT3s I´m seeing on www.tirerack.com for $159/each.
