14" rally tires?
I've actually been using some Falken 14 inch tires I got without thinking about it a while back. They have a nasty reputation for failing without any damage. But they're about all I have for options right now. Starting to look hard for 15" wheels and a new final drive.

DMack's smallest 15-inch tire is 175/70-15, which works out to a 24.3" outer diameter. Their smallest 14-inch tire has a 23.4" inch outer diameter. Stock is just shy of a 23" OD.

Rub might be a problem with a 15-inch rally tire. Worse, in my case I couldn't change the final drive in RallyCross without jumping to the highest prep category, leaving me with some awkward first/second gear work.

No easy answer. At least we're guaranteed to spend a lot of money, no matter what we do.

Put a WTB ad on specialstage or rallyanarchy. Dmacks seem to be the only game in town nowadays.

I ultimately got a pair of 14-inch Yokohama A035's from Demon Tweeks UK to get me through 2014 until hopefully something better comes along. With shipping and customs fees, they were about $240 each.

They arrived at my door in three days, which was impressive. Not so hot was having to call five UPS phone numbers to get someone in the UPS customs brokerage department that would release the tires for delivery. They had to confirm the tire size. The tire size stamped on the tires banded together sitting in their warehouse. A week later they sent me a bill for customs brokerage $20 on top of what I was charged for shipping. Good job, team.

I got my Michelins used & cheap when a stage rally came through the area.
