  1. Yep, those Jovites do look good. I have a set on the ke25 that look very similarly sized. Not that it matters, thing hasn't been driven sinse I brought it home years ago. Think from memory I saw MS's KE55 at a jap show couple years back up here in Brisbane. Very nice car.

  2. I’m 14 x6 on the AE86 and 13 x 6 on the TE27 (when it can roll). 13 x 5.5 on the KE15 for now which is overkill unless I can find some nice period 13 x 5 for it. Considering the Falcon GT had 6 inch wheels from memory. It’s just too much unsprung weight. And of course modern tyres are incomparable to what was available back then. I appreciate tyre choices are somewhat limited, but not impossible. Those wheels on MS car look phenomenal!

  3. Those wheels look much better I reckon. Thought about widening the rear rims? I always like the way rims/tyres filled flares on the rear end of LX hatchbacks but obviously not 10's-12's on a KE55😆

  4. Hi Pete, Me either, but I've done it to most small cars I've owned. 1. Generally larger tyres have a wider tread, & therefore more contact/grip/traction with the road ? 2. Generally larger tyres are greater in diameter, so slightly less revs required to cruise at the same speed ? 3. Generally larger tyres produce a greater track width, with better & safer handling ? 4. Generally larger tyres on small cars, results in lower weight on the tread, & less wear/longer life ? 5. Generally larger tyres create a more pleasant looking vehicle ? Take this late 1950s early 1960s Ford Anglia 105E Piddly little 510 x 13 inch wheels. I've seen wheels bigger than that, on a wheel barrow. I know, because I used to own one once. I put 640 x 14 Holden wheels on it, & the 640 x 14 Holden tyres were cheaper than I could buy the 510 x 13 tyres. Lower it a bit, & then the car became a different animal. Green one looks scared . . . . . . The Red one looks like it could take on anything. Mind you, if that's not to your liking, you could make the wheels & tyres just a little bit bigger. Cheers Banjo

  5. I’ve never understood the push to put huge wheels and tyres on such small cars.
