I have put in over 20 hrs of searching in the past 2 weeks with no defined results just alot of.. u need this or u need that with no actual facts/proof to back it up...
ive checked all the 4g threads here and on mirage performance forum..

all the research I found says my 94 mirage es came with 14s.. it has aftermarket 13s on it now.

what I would love to know is.. what is the best size rim..15x7 or 16x7.... and most importantly the offset.. ive seen they use anything between 35-45.. I want to run something like a 205-50 or a 225-50 series tire.. just want to make sure it will fit and not rub on the fender or the strut.. will probably lower the car a lil but definitely not too much as the roads here suck..


thanks for any input/help on the offset/size.


Steve

I'm using a 15 x 6.5 with a +35 offset I believe. They look great with a 205/50 mounted on them. My car is lowered about 1.5" all around too.

that looks nice Chris.. seems every rim I find that I like (im a very picky person)... are either 40 offset or 10 offset.. im also looking at the 15x7 size should I look for 6 1/2 instead?
