Default smaller tire size for 14s?

I have stock tires right now on my 94 hardbody. I think 195/75/14. What would be a good tire size I was thinking 185/65/14

I was thinking about getting some chrome pathfinders I see people run. With 195/50/15 but maybe I can just use my stock 8 spoke rims and get the same look.

I would definitely recommend going to at least a 15" wheel, there are not many choices in 14" tires anymore.

My truck is pretty stock and I run a 215/60/15 tire on stock Frontier 15 x 7" wheels, my truck is not lowered at all.

you can use a tire comparison tool like inked to below to compare tires, I chose the tire I have as I wanted the same diameter as stock but in the 15"

here is my 93 with the 215's, plenty of room to lower it if I wanted too:

I seen a clean hardbody on here but I can't find it now. It had 16 Isuzu steelies. I was wondering if I would have to bore them out or are they a perfect fit? Where would be the best place to order Isuzu trooper steelies?

Check the bigger walmart stores. And I’m serious. The ones here have a giant catalog they can order rims from for damn near anything.

the Isuzu wheels should bolt right on, same center hole size, junk yards would be good place to find the wheels or craigslist, there is a site online that has wheels but they are expensive - originalwheels.com

Just remember the smaller the tire the higher your highway rpms will be.
