Weren't the SE's 14"? I thought the SE rims were a direct transfer from the SE-R--14".

Guess I answered my own question: he DOES have an SE and he's asking about 14 inchers.

92 SE oem wheels were 13x5 alloys with 175/70/13 tires...

How ya doin Frank... long time no see. ;)

The easy way to remember is this- EVERY 1.6 Sentra came with 175/70/r13's.

The SE-R came with 185/60/r14.

Hope that clears it up. Also- going from a 185 series to a 195 series without reducing the sidewall profile will cause your speedometer to read wrong. The rule is for every 10mm wider you go, you need to reduce the sidewall 5%.

To run a 195 series without speedometer error, you'd have to use a 195/55/14. 205 series would be 205/50/14. And so on.

Well here you go: http://www.tirerack.com/tires/SelectTireSize.jsp?autoMake=Nissan&autoModel=Sentra&autoYear=1993

Are you sure you have an E?? A sure fire way to know (from the exterior) is if your bumpers are generic gray (as opposed to body color for the XE). Yes I know it says E or XE on the rear but those things sometimes come off. If you have PS odds are it is not an E. Also look on page 9-8 in your owner's man and it lists P155/80R13 as well as P175/70R13. (My door label also lists
175.)

Just thought of something...maybe 175 were an available option on the E? I'll have to check my brochure when I get home.

Trust me, it's an E. No XE I know of came with gray bumpers, 1 mirror, no power steering, and unupholstered doors.

Also every E I've seen in the junkyard had 175's on it.
