I'm getting some 14'' peugeot alloys and was wondering what size tires I can fit to them and if someone had pictures of the different sizes?

I want to keep the speedo readout somewhat normal so I came with these sizes 205/60/14 or 195/60/14, loads of other sizes are possible, but I can't find tires in those sizes :-\

p.s. it's for under the XT, so no offroad tires, they need to be "performance" tires.

Find out the rolling diameter of your current tires and then get some 14"'s of the same diameter - usually can be found at the mfr.'s web site under detailed specs.

There's a little company called "Vredestein" near you that makes good 185R14's. ;)

thanks for the effort guys but have you read my post at all (maybe I wasn't clear enough)?

I want wide performance tires the same size as the standard tires, that's 185/70/13, I currently have 185/70/15 or something, too big, that's for sure.

second question was if someone had pictures of 205/60/14 tires, as they may be too bulky.

Here is a great (and simple) tire size calculator. I think I actually found it on this board somewhere ...

Not the best pic of them, but those are the 205/60-14 tires you mentioned on my XT-6. It's been converted to coil type suspension. They're Perelli tires. old worn, weather checked, what have you, but they grip good still, or did....

Use the tire calculator and punch in your stock tire size. Then find out what 14" tire will give you the same diameter.

Then goto TireRack.com and search for tires matching that size and find one you like.

Ive run tires as wide as 205 on my old Brat, they were 205/50R15.
