Ford Probe 95 Need help and advice with fitting new rims.

Post by Vivichan94 » Mon Nov 13, 2017 5:44 pm

Hi guys

I'm new here and maybe someone already talked about it, maybe not but, I can't find rims for my Ford Probe 2.0l 1995.
It is recomended to have 6jx15 5x114.3 ET40 central bore 67.1
I have looked everywhere I have searched every e-shop for preferably steel rims as I'd like to use them with my new winter tyres for upcoming big europe trip. Now my question to all of you guys is.. Can I fit anything else on my probe, I mean have anyone put different sized rims and it worked fine? If you have any advice or tips feel free to write it down as I need to put winter tyres on something that will fit my car and won't affect my driving.. much. BTW I haven't bought the tyres yet as I got stuck on picking up the rims.

Cheers

Your welcome to collect on Saturday, but I'm at work in the morning, unsure what time I'll be home
But my wife, Jan will be at home

Sunday, would be better for me.

lol

with less and less of our cars on the road, we are starting to get a bit thin on the ground,
However, the active club members make up for the lack of numbers by their helpfulness and knowledge
and their willingness to keep the club running....
