Hey guys was wondering what is yalls take on running 14" tires and wheels? I understand smaller tires and wheels help in gear ratio,and I really like how much cheaper they are,compared to 15".Has any body run them,or know of anybody who has run them.What sizes should I get (# left and right)What are the pros and cons here.While I find and build a better motor,I gonna start with the old worn out one in the car and run the stock gears.Car is A metric Pontiac.Thanks for all your feed back!!

Double, I've always been told that 15" tires get better traction than 14"wheels. I tried this on my first race car spent about the same amount, I wished I'd gone 15" first. I'd go with the 15"s they'll be cheaper if you can find used ones, try swap meets or e-Bay. I doubt that many used 14" are around. Hope this helps..loojack

Forget the 14" run some 15" save yourself time and headaches later down the road.
