that sidewall would be far too tall.
you are looking for small not balloon-ish right?
the 165/65/14 tire's sidewall is basically 1 inch taller than the 195/45/14
and the overall diameter is 1.5 inches more than the 195/45/14.
i know you are looking for cheap but you say you are also looking for the "smallest" 14" tire.
x2 on the 165/65's...
I don't have 'em yet (pic request anyone?) But that's what I plan on running on my 14x6's. I've got 185/60's on there right now, and they're a little balloony. I was hoping for something lower profile with a little stretch, and since funky euro sizes are impossible to find (175/50's would be sweetness), I think the 165/65's are the best bet.
195/45's would be a little shorter (and more expensive of course) but they'd also be too wide for my 14x6's. Broken dipstick, what size wheel are you running? If its a nice wide wheel, these would be your best bet, but if you're just running snowflakes or bottlecaps or something (like I am) then I wouldn't go with 'em.
Just for clarity's sake:
165/65/14 = 6.50 inches wide, 4.22 inch tall sidewall
185/60/14 = 7.28 inches wide, 4.37 inch tall sidewall
195/45/14 = 7.68 inches wide, 3.45 inch tall sidewall
btw, bridgestone potenza re92's are the only 165/65/14 tire commonly available. $268.00 including shipping from tirerack.com http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
edit: Just saw they're for teardrops. So yeah, do these. and pics when done plzkthnx.
