Default Pictures of SC2s with wheels

For those of you that have lowered ealry model SC2s with 15" or 16" aftermarket wheels, post some pictures. I'm wanting to get some wheels and I'm not sure what size to get, or if there is even a niticeable difference.Thanks

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

1993 SC2
Default Re: Pictures of SC2s with wheels

This is my 1993 SC2... it rode on 16-inch Konig Divas and Kelly Charger dry/rain performance tires with the same sidewall as the stock 15 inchers (tire guy made the mistake)

since the overall tire diameter changed the gearing it was a slightly slower but man did it stick to the road in the summer.

I still have them and have no intention on selling them. I guess it's my emotional link to that 93.

It did sit an inch higher and fill the wheelwells nicely, which looked sweeetly agressive.

wheels- $375, I got a discount on em since I worked at Saturn of GR just down the road from there.
tires- about $120 each. 7.5 inch wide if I remember right, they rubbed the inner wheelwell very slightly at full lock.

Wow 1993SC2, with the 60 profile tires those do look small.


Is there really a noticeable difference between 15 and 16 inch wheels? So far from what I've seen I can't tell much of a difference.

there's a difference in ride quality and impact harshness. 195/60-15 tires on 15x6 wheels aborb bumps better than 205/50-16 tires on 16x7 wheels. when I put my winter wheels (15x6) and tires (195/60-15) on, my car feel soft and mushy compared to my "plus one" (16x7) wheels with summer (205/50-16) tires. it takes me a day or two to get used to the switch since (OE) Firehawk GTA tires have no grip compared to Hankook R-S2.
