Wheel Question

Recommended Posts

I have a 92 LS and I spotted some wheels off a 95 LS that I'd like to buy. Are the newer wheels going to work on my 92?

And, assuming that you use the 225/60-16 tire size that were standard on the 1993-2000 LS400, your speedometer will read 4.441% slower at 60 mph than it does now: http://www.1010tires.com/TireSizeCalculator.asp

And the ride will be substantially more harsh and you will notice pavement irregularities you have not noticed before. The 93-94 LS had different springs and shocks and other minor suspension differences that softened the ride with the larger OEM wheels.

The results may be within a range of comfort that is perfectly acceptable to you. The effect of the 95 LS wheels and tire size on your 92 LS certainly isn't going to be nearly as radical as people who "pimp out" their 90-92 LS's with 19" or 20" wheels.

I put 95 wheels on my 92 and used a Michelin 225/55-16 tire. It is extremely close to the original diameter, less than 1% difference. The ride improved over the stock wheel and tire, steering is better, tracking is better, less "mushy" feeling. Even looks better.

It's the right thing to do.....
