15 inch wheels?

This raises questions.

What car do they come from?

What width is the rim?

What size tyres are you using?

They look OK in the pictures & the tyres seem to protect the wheels from kerbing rather than the 17 inch 205's on a 7 inch rim that my GT Line 133 has as standard.

Have always thought the Wind was under geared do your tyres give a larger diameter?

Araf:

Am very interested in details of your 15 inch wheels & tyres as I intend to do more long distance work & that extra inch of rubber; assuming one had 17 in wheels originally; could make a lot of difference comfort wise. Tyres currently good but when the time comes for new tyres perhaps a change of wheels might also be on the cards.


Are they 7 inch rims? In which case they could take tyre widths from 195 to 225 mm although 205 & 215 ideal for 7 inchers.

What are your tyre width & section %

Any info would be appreciated.

It didn't go, but the Boxster did, in 55 minutes!

The Wind is being part-ex'd against the Boxster replacement next week.

Pittstop,
I'll sort out the wheel answers later.  Just off out for the afternoon.

Sorry, but I just don't want the extra cost of having a spare car here. Sad

6.5 x 15 with 205/50-15 tyres to preserve the rolling radius.

A 7" wheel is too wide for these cars, which is why the rims scrape easily.

It has gone.

Nearly 5 years and 38,000 miles.  I won't say they were all enjoyable, but they were more comfortable than they could have been.

The car never let me down, and I met lots of great people while out and about.  I'll pop in now and again, but you'll forgive me if I don't make as many posts as I may have at times.  Thank-you all, especially the site owner here, and on the previous forum for having the foresight to bring Wind owners together.

The replacement (sorry).

Araf,

Thanks for info re wheel & tyre sizes.

By my calcs these would be a little smaller than my current 205/40-17s; reducing mph per 1000rpm by just 1.64% & ride height by 4.9mm; but they should certainly improve comfort & reduce wheel kerbing.

Ideally I would like to increase tyre size to raise mph per 1000rpm for long distance work; as 18.62 is really quite low even for a "roadster"; my TF160 was 21.5.

At approx the same revs the MG would be doing 80mph whereas the Wind would be doing only 70mph.

Obviously couldn't go too far or body clearance could be an issue.

Anyone got a 6 speed gearbox!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nice to see you Araf. Shame you didn't do one last meet, the Passes in the Lakes were amazing but Knebs was an amazing lead car.
