goto a cooper tire dealer, u can get 175/75/14`s in a white wall and dont let them tell u different, ive had a cooper dealer tell me they dont exsist, but they are on my car? lol

and i believe a 14x7 will rub on the rear of a caddy unless u "roll" the inside of the fender up but im not exactly sure, im not a caddy guy

Go to www.performancetirewholesalers.com they have tire height charts available. example: A 175-70-14 is 23.65 inches tall where as a 185-75-14 is 24.93 inches tall. some tires vary but this is the shit in my mind, good chart! hope I helped.,, peace

I know this probably won't make sense to you, but why not get 13's? You can ge them for $299. with tires. Assuming you are talking about spokes.

Then sell your 14's and you don't have a problem.

usually what occurs when they mt/bal is they spin the wheel first, and mark where it's high. then, mount the tire and spin the tire and wheel, and mark where the tire is high. Then they rotate the tire on the rim to counterbalance the weight of the wheel. So, if the weight is the same as the wheel, then no weights are needed. You may want to request this the next time you buy tires, and they should use your best two rims on the front to give you the best ride. :biggrin: :thumbsup:
