darknights posted a topic in Wheels, Tyres, Suspension and BrakesAs above, i'm hopefully picking up some BBS RA's (14x6j ET33) soon with 185/60/14 tyres on for my MK2f polo coupe. I know these tyres are a larger profile than stock (i ran these size wheels/tryes on my old MK2f with slight rubbing at the rear on really bumpy roads), but could anyone tell me the correct factory spec profile for 14's (think G40's came with these wheels as optional extras over the more usual 13" BBS RA's). some people r running 185/50/14's, where as some say that to keep the correct speedo reading you need 55 profile on 14's? i'll prob run these as they are till i need tyres (as the polo aint lowered yet), but when i get the cash i wanna got some lower profile boots guessing i could go 175/55/14 to stretch them a tad?...... so many questions! lol! Here's a couple of pics of a MK2f running Compomotive CX1460's with Yokohama 185/50/14 A539 tyres......
