So the car is a Gold with a 4.10 ring and pinion? No wonder the speedometer is inaccurate, you need a 2.5 cluster with a 4.10.I just got a great deal on a set of OZ wheels for my Milano Gold. 16X7.5, ET30. questions...
1. The car is pretty low-will 205/50-16 tires work? I have Verde gauges, and the speedometer reads quite a bit faster that actual speed with present 205/45-16 tires, so I'm trying to get a taller tire to compensate.
Just use 205 45 16. You will have the least problems. The 205 50 16 are a little tall and you want to raise the car too?
Yes you can use 205 on 7.5J wheels. I think 225 40 16 would be better but is almost nonexistent now. You might have some clearance issues. It all depends on the car. Trust me!
