This is a question and a wanted add.

Wanting to know peoples opinion on Wheel and Tyre sizes for HX Sedan, was thinking 14x8 rear and 14x7 front, or can you go 15x8 and 15x7 lower profile tyres, or should I stick to 14x7 front and rear or 15x7 front and rear. Guards aren't rolled.

Will be chasing some indy dragway or 5 spoke dragway rims to suit or similar.

they where optioned with 14x7 rims. The Pontiac polycast (honeycomb) wheel so you can go 15x8 as so far as the law go's.

Are getting hard to find, mainly 235/60's, and if you can find them they are too bloody expensive. I've been asking around about 'futureproofing' as far as larger diameter rims go. Some say 15" will do, some say 17", the odd one (very 'odd') reckon 18". Old cars are usually ruined by fitting big ugly rims with no rubber, but I think 17" is the biggest the H series Holdens look ok with. When I change I'm not going with spokes. They've been done to death, probly go to something similar to my US800's.

I've got Chevy rally rims 15x7 front and 15x8 rear which I'm happy with. If you have power steering then 15x8 all round is a good look

Thanks alot for the replies guys, have only had the hx for a few days looking at all options, after a few days of getting over it and checking things out, reckon i got a good buy, been in the same family since new, no rust at all, has genuine gts front guards, premier front end, needs a bit of work on paint and full interior makeover will set up a garage page as soon as i figure this site out a bit lol.
