I think the 14" wheels would look out of place on the Bonny that was built for a 16" setup. If that doesn't concern you, then give it a try (keeping in mind the other considerations mentioned earlier).

Bridgestone Turanza ER30 $143 treadlife warranty NONE
Kumho Touring A/S795 $45 treadlife warranty 70,000 miles
do not confuse a cheap or inexpensive tire with a poorly made tire
i have the A/* 795'* on my Ford Ranger (235/75-15) no problem after 45000 miles.

I had purchased the Bridgestone Turanza LS-T tires and they are awesome for handling on dry pavement and great in the snow. I paid about $550.00 mounted balanced and also had a wheel alignment done. I also got an 80,000 mile warrenty with those also.

So $550.00 US is about hm...$700.00 Canadian? lol Think I'm going to try placing those 14" rims on the car tomorrow and see what happens. Hope my speedo won't be that far off.

at 1010tires.com i found 6 tires under $100 Canadian. (215-60/16)
the tire rack will also ship to Canada and with over 25 tires under $75 US
its not that much $$$$....if you still want the 14" tires be sure the tire can handle the weight of the car, 1400# per tire minimum . my tires are rated for 1600+# (235-55/17)
for a 2000 SSEI. i would hate to lose a tire on the freeway because it got to hot.
the next set of tires i get will have a rating of over 1700# good luck with your tires.

If you have any questions give them a call and ask for Eric.
