205/55R14 on teardrops?

Postby VDubbler » March 15th, 2012, 12:04 am

So I'm able to get some Nitto 205/55R14's at work for a good price and was wanting to mount them on my teardrops. I'm just wondering if anyone would know what the side wall would look like on them? I know there won't be any stretch, but I'm wondering if they'll be straight sidewall or if it'll be kind of bulgy. I measure the teardrops and they are 7" wide. All help/opinions are be appreciated!

So I fitted a 185/65R14 on them today and those are pretty straight sidewall (if anything the slightest bulge). So 205's are defs way too big. I'm just gonna stick with the 185/55R14's. Thanks for all the input peeps!
