Rims--PLEASE HELP

I have a 98 200. I am rolling on the stock 14s right now, however i want to upgrade to some 16" or 17" rims. I have heard that this will jack up your speedometer and your odometer. Is this true?

depends on what size of tires you use as to how bad it will be
but yes, it will be slightly off

I was going to run 205/40/17's on my 200sx, you say this will be right on with the speed?

Then get 45-series tires.

Everything I've ever read/seen about the B13 and B14 says 205/40/17 is correct, though.

Well, it could be that you have non stock-sized tires and so are not basing the measurement off of the original size. Seeing how you have an SE-R, someone could have put fatter tires on it in the past, throwing off the calculator. Nonetheless, I'm just going off what I know.

185/60/15 Coopers. That's what's on there. I don't know what it was supposed to come with stock.

195/55 15 is the tire the car was equipped with. The tire you are running is about the same diameter, but the tread width is much smaller (5.9" vs 6.7")

wait, 55's? You sure their not 60's?
I'm pretty sure. I got the spec from the 1997 B14 Factory Service Manual. Also, I bought my car new, and 195/55 15s are what came on it.
