    Best Tire Size for 15"x6" Supra Rims

    Found a set of supra mags and they happen to be the semi-rare L-type 15" ones but I dont know what tires size to get for them. They are going on a ae86 so if anyone knows a nice tire combo I can get to make fit my ae nicely.

    6" is 152.4 mm, so look into 155 treadwidth tires, unless you want stretch, in which case look into something a little smaller.
    bahahahahaaaa! just kidding around!

    doesn't everyone run 195's on the 14" supras? just get a 195 width tire that's the right diameter.
    i get 195/50r15 from the calculator here (assuming factory equipment is a 185/60r14)

    The body shop I work at has a set of summer tires that are 205/55R15, is that too wide? I was also thinking of getting 195 too

    What kind of ride/grip do you want? If you ask me, narrower tires (175's, 185's) are way more fun on the road because you can slide around a bit and feel the balance of the car without breaking the speed limit too much.... To feel 205s move under you, you'll be going fast and pulling G's... and when they let go, you're way more likely to find the ditch. I kinda think that the Corolla chassis is too soft for 205's to work properly because with that much grip, it's the chassis that will be the grip-loser, not the tires.... Handling ain't ultimate grip, it's feel.

    195/50/15 is a great size. Don't go with a super grippy tire, a HP or UHP tire on the lower budget side would be perfect. 70-80 bucks per tire.

    The problem with L-types is that they're something stupid like 27mm offset, whereas 14s are 7mm offset so more dish.

    try 195/50s and see if you like the fitment... I've seen them on 86s before, did not like too much.

    27mm? ewwww. I could put that on my miata.

    Just buy Josh's XXR's and get a real wide rim.

    If you want stretch on a 6" wide wheel get some 125/55/15.

    The 15" ones came off the L-type Supras while the more common 14" ones come off the P-type IIRC.

    if you want to get super nerdy about it, only 85 L-types had those wheels, which were never sold in Canada. All Canada L-types got the ugly L-type 14" wheels.
