    Which pattern?
    Check that weight rating is suitable.
    97 or higher.

    I thought you could even go as wide as 215 on a 5.5 rim....:rolleyes:

    If you decide to play in deeper mud you could carry a couple of spares of MT ft9 mankang.
    EB260
    No 205/75.14 available but 195/82.14 are only 2mm bigger OD.
    C construction as well .

    Compatible with the 205/ 75 on same axle as a spare if needed.
    No ft7 avail in 195/82.

    If you run a pair on back on hwy the higher profile will be more prone to sideways flex but this can be offset with a few extra psi.

    I wouldn't.
    Don't think it would be listed as an option.
    I have 215/65.14 on 6" syncro rims ( purchased as such ) and recon they need all of the 6".
    Preference ( well, mine anyway ;) ) is for bead or outer edge of rim and outer edge of tread to be roughly in line.
    A size either side is normal.
    Wider gives more flex and comfort.
    Narrower stiffer sidewall and harsher ride .
    ( Rough but noticeable difference)
    But naturaly , tyres also vary this.

    A couple of calculators list such but generally not likely on tyre fitment lists
    I still would limit 5.5" X 14 to a 205 for acceptable handling.

    Fair enough. I recall my SC had 215’s on it when I bought it, but apart from a volunteer driver helping me bring it home, I never did any real mileage on them, before they were replaced.

    Easy fix. Just buy some syncro rims.

    Hi Syncro,

    Excuse the ignorance but if the synchro wheels are 14” same as my current stock rims, what’s the benefit of switching?

    cheers

    14 x 6". Standard rims are 14 x 5.5".

    Also more heavy duty.
