1979-1993 & 94 Conv
That's what I did. I am actually running narrow tires 195 width, but I was able to get General GMAX AS-03's in 195/55R16 which are almost 100% exactly the same diameter as 185/65R16. The tires do stick out some due to the offset, so depending on how lowered your car is, condition of springs etc, you could rub still if you hit a big bump, but I haven't really noticed on my non-lowered car. The 195 tire is a touch wider on these rims. Overall I really like this setup and was happy to not have to mess around with axle relocations etc. A slightly narrower tire can be better in wet conditions. Both my 9-5's are 225 width and I find that tire choice is much harder in terms of avoiding hydroplaning at speed.
Good luck getting it back on the road!
