View Full Version : Wanted: Set of Rims and Tires for Emissions on an 80 Series

Looking for a set of 4 rims and tires to use for emissions tests. I have loaned in the past but hate to keep asking folks :-)

If you have any you would part with I would take them if the price is reasonable, and if anyone wants to loan me some for a price I would be happy to start there as well.

John, I can drop them off as before when I make the monthly pilgrimage to Lowry. Just ask!

I have a set you can borrow as well, kept them for just this purpose :)


I need to get an etest this month but I'm going to try with the 315s first because as per my measurements they come in under 34" so we'll see...

What's the deal with tires and emissions testing?

Something only us lucky ones get to deal with...:lmao:

Being serious though, they won't e-test a vehicle with tires larger than 34" measured...315s are supposedly a 35" tire but most don't measure out that tall but often the etest wonks will refuse to test the vehicle because a 315 is a 35" tire so then you have to cajole them into actually measuring the tires...

In Nemo's case though I think he is running 37s so no amount of measuring is going to help him sneak by :hill:
