Stock Steel 14" Wheels with 195/60's

This sounds like a cheap way to add some looks and performance... Can someone show me how it looks?

I dunno, I was reading some other posts and they were saying 195/60 was the way to go, wouldn't a 60 series by wider as well?

I guess I am looking for a visual upgrade, bigger tires look cool thing, and maybe some performance boost....

possibly the wider portion of it yes.

But more rotating mass wouldn't really help with speed performance. Heck may not even be noticable.
Then agian I'm getting some 16's on pretty soon.

Not looking for a speed boost maybe some better handling but really thinking about the visual aspect of it..

That's why I wanted to see a pic and see if it looks much different.....

The performance benefits of running a wider tire size on the stock 14x5.5" wheels are negligible at best.

I would stick with the stock 175/65/14 or 185/65/14 size depending on what model Corolla you have.

They only way to reliably increase the contact patch of the car is to get wider aftermarket wheels in a +1 or +2 sizing, then depending on what width you choose, get a wider tire to accommodate the wheel.

In that case, you would be better off with a 16" wheel...7" wide, and run 205/45/16 tires.

In terms of offset, you would be looking at a +40 or +42, you should be able to get away with that sizing without rolling your fenders.

What would you guess he is running: This looks really nice, and I realize he is lowered....

Those look like 16s to me, he's also running 205/45/16 tires. PM him

But he's lowered like 3" on ground controls, so you won't get the same tucked tire look.

But you will fit out the wheels wells.

Hmmmm.... well I guess I need to revise my question now:

What wheel and tire size would look good on a stock height non-lowered Corolla? Keeping in mind the image above...
