asked by on

185/70R14 wheel size i want to replace with alloy wheels,whether i have to replace both tyre and alloy wheel or new alloy wheels are enough.
My car has a manual transmission.

As long as you get the same size rim, you should be fine. Check on the factory rim to see if a size is stamped somewhere. It is usually on the inside of the rim so you may need to pull the wheel off the car to see it. When you find a wheel that you like, contact or look up the manufacturer and see if they have a fitment chart. The local wheel and tire store should be able to measure you current rim and determine what size wheel you can buy and still use the same tires.
