Waiting on my 14x7's to be delivered. I'm curious if theres any pics of 14s on 175/70/14 and 175/75/14.
I’m curious as well, looks like everyone is posting 185’s though. Me personally I plan on going 520’s and 14’s, not sure on the specs of the 520’s but seems to be the best combo for 14’s imo, compared to what’s available in a 14 white wall tire.

Just curious is there a reason the size is being discontinued? I found a set on Amazon just still deciding on whether I get them or not.

Ya I was thinking maybe some Coker 5.20 14s also they seem to be more the look I want for my Caprice.

It’s just manufacturers have discontinued that size in whitewalls over 15 years ago 🤷🏻‍♂️ I know you can get them black walls but next size up are the 185/75/14. As you can see in the pictures there not bad.

There are still a few I found, Suretrac, Remington, and Travelstar all have 175/70/R14 whitewalls.

The difference is 520 look Great and are a 4 ply tire , not a Radial tire. Check ebay I believe you can find a 175 75 14 radial with a White wall , MileStars has a 175 75R 14 for about $375.00 a sets , I have 205 70R 15 and look great not bulky lookin. Check this out the set of 4 X New Suretrac Power Touring 175/70R14 84S Performance All-Season Tire , or Remington tires
