    hi people. can some one tell me what the original wheel and tyre size is for a jdm pulsar.
    have got 17`s on at the moment with stupidly low profile tyres on, which is fine for any town dwellers but i live in the arse end of nowhere and the roads are shite, also its affecting my acceleration and speedo reading. so would like to go for some 15`s or16`s which work out at the same rolling radius as originals.

    also does anyone know of abs problems due to larger rims.get a bit of pedal pulsing when light braking.

    cheers.

    The original rim is a 14x6JJ, and the supplied tyres were 195/55/R14 82V.

    195/45/R15 is about 2.5% different.
    195/50/R15 is about 1% different.
    205/45/R is more like 0.9% different.

    So you can probably keep the same width (195mm) and drop the profile by 5-10% and it should be fairly close to the OEM spec.
