I can pick up a set of old audi rims that are 14x7 from a salvage yard by my house. The only reason I havent gotten them is becuase I can only find 195/60 size tires, and thats just gonna look freaking strange on 7 inch rims. Do they make 205s for 14s or something that will fit better?

so then you shouldnt NEED 14x7 BUT that being said, a 195 wont look bad on it. A 195/60/14 tire is just over 7.5" wide 7.677 to be exact. So you should be fine Smile

what kind of audi did you get these off of? i'm looking to get some cheap winter wheels that are 14x7 because my 13 inch steelies won't fit with the new brakes anymore.

14x7s are kind of hard to come by, really. Only a few companies make them. The 195, like STS said, would be fine, but a 205 may be better.

There are quite a few tires that come in 205/60-14.
http://www.tirerack.com/tires/Compare1.jsp?width=205%2F&ratio=60&diameter=14&startIndex=0&search=true&pagelen=20&pagenum=1&pagemark=1&RunFlat=All&x=76&y=3

edit: the 205/60-14 would be about an inch taller than the stock 185/60-14. Just FYI.

They are off old audi 3000s I think. On CHB a guy had these same rims on his car, painted gunmetal.

The only tires that come in the 205/55-14 are R comps.

The only tire that comes in 205/50-14 is the bf goodrich t/a drag radial, which will work on the street, but not for a long time.
