Re: 14" Wheels

Thanks for the advice Don! I had my 185/65R14 set pulled off the rims today ... and one tire was definitely bad. You've saved me a trip to the ditch.

I'll be inspecting the other set as well!

Re: 14" Wheels

Hi Don, I don't disagree that the automotive world seems to be moving away from 14" wheels in favour of 15" and larger. I, however, have had no issues sourcing used tires in good condition in 14" sizes. In the stock 15" sizes it was a fruitless search. I picked up a set of nearly...

4 Steel rims, TPMS, and hubcaps

Hi everyone, I have moved to 14" wheels on my 2012. My set of 4 15" stock steel rims, TPMS sensors, and hubcaps are now up for grabs. The rubber on the rims is shot and I can have it removed prior to shipping the rims ... but local pickup would be best. Make me an offer! Andrew Trenton, ON...

Re: 14" Wheels

As promised, here are some photos and a bit more of a write-up. My goal here was to move from 15" rims to 14" rims to open up more options for tires. I have successfully mounted 5.5x14 ET45 rims on the front and rear. This required me to use wheel spacers and install longer studs. I went w...

Re: 14" Wheels

I have 175/65R14 tires on the front currently with the stock rear (175/60R15). I got the 175/65R14s for free, so no harm in experimenting. I was out with the car today in town and it was happy. I haven't taken it on the highway yet. No ASC/ABS or regen issues today at up to 80 km/h (50 mph). This co...

14" Wheels

Hello all, I have successfully fitted 14" x 5.5" steel wheels to my 2012. It required a bit of work … but it works! I did this to open up a larger market of used wheels/tires from other compact cars since replacing the stock-size tires are expensive. It is easy to find used tires around he...
