    88 Caravan wheel/tire size options/offset

    Just picked up a nice 88 Caravan with shiny hubcaps. Looking to put something a little nicer on there. Found a few 15" wheels that would look nice but unsure of the offset needed on say a 15x7 or similar. What size tire would go on there?
    thanks

    Offsets around 35mm should be good. 205/70-15 would ride cush and be geared for mpg. Shorter tires will give you more go from stop lights.

    Fiero wheels look amazing on Caravans, but some of them had different front/rear wheel widths, so ideally you'd be looking for a matching set of 4.

    Dont push the red button.You hear me?

    I still have a brand new pair of 17" tires for sale. Would be good on a mini.
