Winter Rim/tire Fit?
I recently bought my new cobalt ls 2009, but before that I had a 2001 civic, and I had bought winter tires for it (a week b4 buyin my 'balt) and slapped them on a pair of steel rims I had from the civic that weren't bein used. The tire fit is fine for the car, the dealer checked in his little computer fit guide. But the rims are 14 inch i believe (1'' smaller than the stock rims) and i figured they would fit. Anyone have an idea if they will fit or not? my friend from canadian tire told me I may have trouble fitting them on cuz they had trouble with cobalt rim fitting, but that I could just take a grinder and lightly grind the outside top of the caliper to ensure no rubbing. That's sort of a last option though i rly dont wanna buy new tires again!
*EDIT* moderators, I messed up this thread. It belongs in suspension/rims/tires section can you please move it?
