Default will these rims work with default tires?

since my stock rims are bent like crazy i thinking of buying in some nicer rims for my 97 sc2.

https://www.discountedwheelwarehouse...=AR92157098435

My question is will these fit the stock tire size?

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

If you have 15" original alloy wheels on it now, then yes they will work just fine with your existing tires. I think they original steels are 14", so you might want to double check if you have steel wheels and plastic hub caps. Heck, double check any way if you have original alloy wheels on it now because I could still be wrong lol.

The center bore is large enough and it has the right size lug pattern in it's multi-lug layout, so they shouldn't have an issue bolting up.

My steel wheels are 15". I think 14" wheels were an SL or SL1 thing. I don't think any DOHC S Series had 14".

Default Re: will these rims work with default tires?

DOHC got 15's, SC2 got alloy 15's stock while they were optional on everything except SL.
SOHC got 14's, no alloy option in 14" but 15" alloys were optional.

7" is a bit wide for a 195 tire but it'll work safely. Any wider on the rim (even just 7.5") and you'll be stretching the tire which can lead to major bead seat issue's (lookup tire stretching). For me, I think I'd bump the wheel to a 16" and get 205/50R16 tires.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
