Tyres

Hi , Am I right in thinking the width of the Wolfrace wheel on a 1979 6a is 5 1/2 J . If so I have 205 x70 x 14 tyres that are too wide for the rim according to the excellent chart that Jim posted .?

Hi Mickp, I have just looked at your project tab and imho it is one of the clearest explanations of fitting relays for the uninitiated in car electrics.

6a tyre size

My utmost apologies. I should have said 195/70/R14 . I totally agree 175 would be too narrow. Sorry about that.

6a tyre size

My 6a is fitted with 205/70/R14 . They are due for change and I was thinking of putting on 195/70/R14 due to the choice of tyres available.
What are the Pros and Cons of fitting the smaller tyres. Thankyou.
