Default 14" Wheels on 94 V6 Camry???

Can a 1994 V6 Camry use 14" wheels. I have access to a used set of 14"
winters and would like to know before I go looking for some steel rims. TIA.

The answer is: it may or it may not. Your car has stock 15" rims.
Sometimes, wheel sizes are made to clear the brakes. The diameter and
width are determined to ensure proper clearance. Try to put one of
the wheels on and see if it fits. I doubt it but it is worth a shot.

There should be no problem with that

It can, if you take care to get the rolling radius and therefore the
circumference of the wheel and tyre about the same. You need to do this or
your effective gearing and speedo calibration will be different.

Assuming your car is fitted with 205/65-R15, which is a common size here in
Oz, on 14" rims of the same width, 6", you would need 195/75, 205/70, or
225/65 tyres to get approximately the same rolling radius. These tyres
could be fitted to a 6" rim.

See
http://www.chris-longhurst.com/carbi...yre_bible.html
for more information.

Also take care that the rims you get will clear the brake calipers and other
suspension components through the whole range of wheel travel, since the rim
offset may be different. You may also find that your handling and ride may
change a little since the sidewall height will be greater.
