Re: upgrade to 15" steel wheels????....on a cavalier.

OK after talking it over with a few of you and the autozone guys and local used junkyard. i think i'm going to stay with this size 185/75/14 's.
I don't think im going to get much more height from a 15" wheel.so for now
im just going to go up in tire size maybe a 205.
unless of course I stumble across some free or very cheap steel wheels .
thanks to all again.

Oh, you were looking to change the height etc... It is not a good idea to do this with just tires. You need to re do the suspension also if you want that type of change...

The cavalier already looks like a 4x4, why raise it any higher?
