Will the 86tc 15" work on the 88tc? I got good tires on my 86 which is just sittin at the momment, and need some temps for my 88(cant afford tires right now).

So will they work? or am i out of luck?

Don't forget, the tach and the speedo were calibrated for 16" wheels, so your actual speeed may be different.

The wheels won't throw off the tach. The tach is run off the motor.

Well, then it would be even farther off. [Image: wink.gif]

Stock speedo is definately off. I have permanent "your speed is: **" signs near my house, I've tried at multiple speeds and mine at least seems to read 5mph high all the time with the stock wheels/tire size.

It does help out on the highway though since I tend to speed anyway, but tend to forget the speedo is 5 mph off.

Will the 15" wheels clear the front 11" brakes in the 88?
