acura wheels : We have a 1987 Integra with 120,000 miles on it.It is about to need new tires, but the recommended tires are very expensive. This is because they recommend the 185-60/14 size.These would be about $380 installed, whereas the 185-70/14 would be around$200.Since the car is probably nearing the end of its useful life,I don't want to put expensive tires on it. The guy at Discount tires tells me that the 185-70/14 or 195-70/14 will not fit. He claims thatAcura changed the wheel size from the original 13 inch as on the base Honda (which the Integra really is) to the 14 inch size. This then meant that the tires had to be the 60 size because the 70 size would betoo big for the wheel wells. Anyone got any thoughts on this? What would be the effect of putting 13 inch rims on this car? Would any change in handling orperformance result? Would this affect control and other safetyissues in any way? You can reply directly to me by e-mail unless you think thatthis question would interest other readers.Thank you.
acura wheels : Your 185/60-14's have a daimeter of about 22.74", the 185/70-14'sare 24.20" diameter. That's enough difference to cause *serious*clearance problems -- not to mention a 6.4% speedometer error.You *could* switch to 13" wheels, but I don't see how that wouldsave you any money; you can expect to pay at least $25 each forused Honda/Acura wheels (new steel wheels run about $100 each ata dealer's parts counter) -- and the 13" tires wouldn't be thatmuch cheaper. (Closest 13" equivalent: 175/70-13 = 22.65" dia.)For around $250, you should be able to get four top-quality tiressuch as Dunlop D60/A2's (see Consumer Reports, 1/95). Tire Racklists them at $48 each (185/60HR14) and a local tire discounter(NTW) is usually within a couple bucks of the Tire Rack prices. Allow another $8-$12 per tire for mounting and balancing.I just put the second set of D60/A2's on my '89 MX-6 GT -- they'reeasily the best buy around in high performance tires -- *teriffic*dry-road traction, *great* in the rain, "tolerable" in the snow,quiet, and better tread life than anything else I've tried lately.
acura wheels : Is it just me, or is anyone else bothered by the fact that IASCAcompetition isn't just centered around sound and installationquality, but also extends to the presentation of the entire car?Not sure what I'm talking about? Ok, let's have a "for instance".For instance, let's say Joe Blow has an older car which doesn'thave custom rims, a custom paint job, and in fact is more or lessa "beater". His buddy John Smith has a new 1996 Acura with high-dollar rims and tires.Let's give Joe Blow and John Smith the same equipment and havethat equipment installed by the same shop; for the sake of arguement,SpeakerWorks. Now, barring the fact that the interiors of both carsare going to affect sound differently, let's say that SpeakerWorksis able to tune each car to sound identical to the other. This nowbrings us to my point...If these two cars compete at an IASCA sanctioned event, the fact that Joe Blow's beater has the same equipment installed by the sameshop as John Smith's Acura isn't going to matter. Their sound qualityshould (repeat, SHOULD) be identical. Now for the trick question...Who is going to win if these cars are competing head to head?
acura wheels : It's a no-brainer. John Smith's flashy new Acura is going to win.And why? Because the CONDITION OF THE CAR is biasing the judges fromthe VERY FIRST MINUTE they lay eyes on the car. If you don't believethis theory, then ask yourself why all the high dollar cars are under-going INTENSIVE prepping and detailing the night before competition...I believe that the install should be a large part of each competitor'sscore, but REALLY, does the OUTSIDE of the car have ANYTHING to do withsound quality? With installation quality? As a judge, I wouldn't wantto sit in the trash and french fry littered interior of someone's car,(although as an installer, I usually have to do just that) but is thefact that they didn't detail it before they brought it to me going toaffect anything? Short of bringing in a mud-caked 4x4, the outside ofthe car doesn't have JACK to do with car audio.This has bothered me for some time, and I feel that it gives an even GREATER unfair advantage to those who are able to "blank-check" theirinstall. If money is no object for their install, consider the same fortheir vehicle. How is the average competitor supposed to compete withthis? (Don't get me wrong, I'm NOT a disgruntled competitor, and in factI probably fit pretty well into the "blank-check" group, except I do allmy own work and I'm a dealer. I just believe in fair play.)
