Hey i have 16 inch rims i think :S. maybe 15's? :S I was told they were the rims off of an XR6 though so far i havent been able to confirm it. If anyone could give me any help on identifying these rims i would be grateful:

What i would like to know about these rims as well is wat are the fattest tyres i can put on it? I've heard that they can hold up to 265/xx but i wouldn't have a clue. Also wat kind of tyres are the best? I have madisons on the front and they are awesome tyres with a wiked tread pattern IMO and i had firestone firebirds on the back which in my opinion were s**t. Only becuase they ran out of tread real fast! Maybe its becoz that is wen i first got my car and i had to test em out ;) but yer, if you could tell me some good known brands for tyres i would appreciate it. Thanks in advance

They're not off an ED XR6, I can tell you that much....

The size will be on the tyre, won't it?

They look like the wheels off an ef/l, actually they could have been a futura style rim off of the EF/EL.

IIRC they're either 15X7 or 16X7, and either way, the widest you'd sanely want to go is about 225-235

be careful with the madisons, they're good in the dry, but suicide in the wet

I have those mags on my ED futura Classic. I think they started using them on the Last of the ED's.

I run mine on 235 Bridgestone Potenza GIII's. They are an outstanding tyre in both the wet and dry, I've never had second thoughts with them. They aren't the cheapest tyres ($160-190), but then you get what you pay for.
