Rims / Tyres

by Daves Prem » Wed Jul 17, 2013 10:34 pm

Gday all, as you all know its impossible to find wide 13' or 14' tyres, so i am going to a 15' rim (achieved by buying 4 x 14' HKTG rims and taking them to a wheel place and then they will cut out the inner and weld into a 15' outer)I would like to stay legal in doing so. What are the legalities of doing this? as in what tyre wall profile can i go to? As far as I can read into it, I can only go 15mm larger in diameter than standard. Does any one know the standard diameter of an EH tyre? Im from SA which doesnt help , but hey, hopefully someone out there in internet land can help me out.

Thanks nitrox, are those numbers in the boxes the actual tyre diameters?

Just found out in SA , because EH's are pre ADR , there is no ruling on wheel / tyre diameter. But we still have to keep the track correct!

Just remember track is measured from the middle of the tyre.

Anyone know what model these 13 inch rims are from? They came on EJ standard sedan when I got it, tyre place tells me they are from HR. Rim measures 6 inches across. Looking for tyres to fit, possibly with thin whitewall.

I thought the HR rim had a small hole (about 2mm) in between two of the stud holes.
But this rim looks like itwas produced 7/69 and 13" - my guess LC Torana
What is the offset?

Offset is about 5mm positive. I think they may be custom made wide wheels with EH centres as I have seen similar 13" deep dish steel wheels on eBay.
