ssondubs is cool... so far.
When i had my old H2A5 trans I was 3 mph slower than the 70 indicated on the dash with the 205/55-15 compared to stock 185/70-14 on my LX coupe (GPS verified).

My speedo is off 5 mph...rides fine to me, everyone that drives it says it righe good. I do feel the bumps a bit more, and have to be careful for big pot holes...but have no rubbing issues...I run 225/35's on my 20's.....daily driver. Will lower it soon, if it runs a bit...oh well..if it runs alot, I'll sell the 20's......I got a set of 18's I got my eyes on

20x7.5 +42 offset is my current set up, and I have under 2000 miles on the entire suspension....every bushing, boot, ball joint...and even the power steering rack is new...not from the 20's, but because it was a 21 year old car when I got it

They shop im using is doing a lot of underbody work as well with the rims and tires, im getting balance, rotation, some engine work, and heavy detailing to get her looking new again for the new rims. He's charging me $1100 for a $1600 job since its being done at a more professional shop.

Seriously? Like already said, regardless of what rim you decide the speedometer will be affected minimally. I'm pretty sure you can eyeball your speed pretty acurately, and if you can't then you need to just stick with your punk ass stock 14" steelies.

Whenever you get through with the bloodclot crying, get what job done right you're asking about rims and speedometers. Secondly, if you found an adapter then the speedometer issue isn't an issue then is it?

Wasn't nobody being a dick. Don't get mad at me because you can't tell how fast or slow you're going and need an adapter to adjust a little ho ass 5 or so mph...

Your of no help to me, this site is designed to help people mod and tune their cars, not act like a hard ass and try to proclaim that your all righteous here.

If you got the correct sized tire, then you wouldn't have to worry about the difference in the speedometer because there wouldn't be one.

You don't have to worry about your ride comfort unless you are running extremely low profile tires. On 15's, I would imagine you would have about 50's or 60's, so you will be fine. You shouldn't have any problems with rubbing unless you are seriously slammed. I've never heard of a speedometer problem when running aftermarket wheels, but it's not to say it doesn't happen.
