OK now that my EF is gone I'm cleaning out my left over bits and pieces.

These are 14" E series rims with low profile tyres fitted to basically reduce the rolling diametre of the wheel. I was originally going to fit 3.9 or 4.11 diff gears to my car but with these rims you get the same end result (with a 3.45 diff) by reducing the rolling diametre but you can bolt them on and off when ever you like :)

These make a huge difference to drive with and it basically makes the car drive like it's got a close ratio gearbox. I originally got them for track and drags but they were heaps of fun to drive with on the street too so I left them on alot of the time :lol: (they'll make the speedo read a bit high though)
Taking off at the lights I was grabbing 2nd before I got to the other side of interections and the car accelerates in 4th like it usually does in 3rd. Is nice! At the drags they'll take off 0.1-0.2 secs off your ET

The tyres are bridgstone G grid IIs and altho not being particularly wide they grip suprisingly well - just as good as my 235s. There's not alot of tread left (not that there ever is with low profiles!) but should last a while if you don't use them for burnouts.

I'm chasing $100 for the pair, pick up in south sydney or I'll swap for BA stockies

They are 14's so it will me xxx/xx/14
They have a smaller rolling diameter then stock so 14 inch stock rolling diameter is 75 so these should be about 55
so xxx/55/14
and width looks to be 215

So my guess is 215/55/r14

OK they're 195/60/14s, but being 14s they're an inch smaller to start with.

I've also got a 3rd rim with a retread tyre on it I'll chuck in with the others - I'll leave i up to your imagination what it's good for :wink:

I paid $200 for the 2 low profiles with not much more tread on them than they have now - someone gimme $50 for all 3

I really doubt it'd be worth it to ship them mate.
Where's all the Sydney rev heads when you need them :P

Nah still got them mate.
I was thinking about bringing them to the dyno day but I haven't got a new car yet! (hanging out for the right colour and options)
I'm currently driving my uncles old hyundai lantra, but I don't think I could show my face in that :lol:

Atleast you don't have to worry about competition from me anymore in the NA 6 category :P

competition? haha!.. what happened last time? :twisted: :wink: and lets just say ive set the bar a lil higher.. :D even above the figure when you won the comp.. :D but staying hush until the dyno day.. :wink: Was suggesting you might be able to flog them off easier if you had them on sale on the spot.. as pick up and delivery obviously wouldnt be a hassle.. thus tempting buyers... :wink:

Actually the idea of a swap meet over in one corner at the dyno day could prove quite sucessful

What's your best reading on Joe's dyno ?
As far as I know (I may well be wrong) I hold the record with 174.7 rwkw (with stock ECU!) but by all means knock me off.
...If you can! :lol: :P
