So now I'm wondering if it would be practical, and I can't think why not. There's lots of 14"s on CL for $100 or less, along with the tire savings would probably pay for the spacers. Anyone have an idea what the offset of most 14" steelies are or what size spacers would be necessary?
Mostly talking out loud here.
14"s wont fit. only specifically designed 15" rally wheels (Braid, Enkei RCG4, Team Dynamics are the only ones that come to mind) due to the absence of a dropped center on the wheel.
Basically......unless buying very specific 15" wheels, you need 16's.
