I have recently purchased a standard 89 model FJ62 with standard rims. The size is J 16, 5.5 inch and is currently running almost new tyres with the size 205 R 16. The rims are more hollow from inside than outside.
Now, i have few questions.
Which is the basic/ original size of rims (in terms of the height and width)of a 60/ 62 series cruiser? I have seen many with wider rims especially the VX ltd models with 12HT having plastic fenders on the body. I mean 15" or 16"? 5.5" or 8.5" wide?
Can i use spacers with these rims and how thick? As the current tyre/ rim combination looks very much inside the body and looks bad.
I think 205 is a small size for it. How big tyres (in terms of height and width) can i use on these 5.5" wide rims? What size tyres will give me a diameter of 30 or 31 inch?
