Default Factory Tire Size on 91 SSE Bonni ?

Ive got 215-55-15 On the front and 50'* on the front.

Whats the facotyr size?

Also, I've got those "spoked" alloys (Gold colored). Are those the premium wheels or were they jsut part of the SSE package?

Thanks, Guys,
Rob

Maybe he had a typo. If he says their gold they must be 16", haven't seen any 16" stock golds.

Yes. That was a typo, guys. 16'*, Not 15'*.

So 215/60-16, we're all agreed? Quite shoddy how I've got 55'* on the back and 60' on the front. I do know this car as frequently maintained by Sunoco so that explains them putting on non-factory spec tires.

The Gold Rims are the premium wheels for the 91 SSE or are they just the only rims SSE'* have?

91 was a strange year for the rims.... You had 3 choices and they were free no matter which you choose...

Gold Crosslace
Silver Crosslace
Monotone Curved Sport wheels

Most like the Gold Crosslace tho..

OEM Size is what I'm looking for, DarkShadow. It actually has decent tread 60'* up front and not so decent 55'* on the back. Stock size is what I'm looking for, otherwise I'd leave them. I bought the car to sell it. I work at a Toyota Dealership, we sell quite alot of tires and many people end up buying them with their old ones having over half tread left. Can't recall if any of these piece of trash toyotas come with that specific size, but I'll be on the lookout.


Thanks,
Rob
