Wheels

I am after increased traction for my Tiger. It's currently on 14" 5J minilites.
Can anyone recommend what I should get?

Minilites

Post by Shindles » Thu Jun 22, 2017 10:25 am

Minilite recommend 6.0x15 for the front and 7.0x15 for the rear.
So what tyres do I get and what profile?
195 front and 215 rear seem best but what profile 55, 60 or 65?

I have that sized wheels on my car. I have 50 series tyres. I think if you are going for performance tyres you may only get them with side wall height up to 50 series.

Thanks, very interesting. This will keep the Speedo more accurate.

I have 185/55-15 on 6" minilites on the front and 205/50-15 on 7" minilites on the rear. Continental are the only make I could get both sizes in.
