No you can run them, just need a spacer on the rear 5-10mm, 10mm preferred!
I am running 235/40 tire which is made for a 8.0" wheel but fits just fine on a 7.5. No rubbing. Just sold the last set of Siena wheels to a 164 customer in a 18X8.0 which are fine. Can't wait to see those if he gets me a pic.
make sure, and I repeat make sure the offset is lower than stock, like 25mm-30mm et.
Now if running a 5 mm spacer on a 40mm offset wheel that will reduce the offset by well 5mm, the offset will be 35mm, 10mm spacer= 30mm et, perfect
25mm offset with a 10mm spacer= 15mm offset, that is what I have on the rear. 25mm with a 5mm spacer =20mm on front.
Works fine for me. I like a lower offset anyway. Better tire wear and handling is just fine for street use. Corners great. Just remember most European touring cars run a 0 offset. Not that that is something to go by but they do just about the same type of cornering we do in a car but lower speeds. The camber is still going to give your the good handling.
Hey thanks Jason!! Hey, I am going to attempt to change my timing belt and water pump next weekend, so I will be calling you for advice if that is okay with you. It sounded real easy when you told me the steps, but now that I have all the parts and I am ready to do it, I am getting a little scared I will mess it up big time and screw up my engine!
First off hi:) I'm new to the forum, but I recently bought a not running Alfa 164 for very cheap and am trying to get it running. It was sitting for a year or two but the previous the owner had done all of the internal timing work. I put a new battery in and gave it a try but the car wouldn't...
From the title this might seem like another post asking for help :) Well, it is a bit different this time!
I have reverse-engineered the communication protocol for the Siemens ECU used in 94-95 164s (60577438 and 60585472). I've put together a tool (under Linux) that works with a...
First time for me doing the timing belt on my 1991 164L.. I have done them before on my GTV6 and 3.0 Milano. What used to be the "new tensioner" spring made in Canada done at 70K when mechanical removed. Service by BMW guys. When I first looked at the tensioner pointer was high by 5mm. Removed...
Hope there is something of interest and helpful in this maintenance sticky of mine
