It might, but why?
14" tire sizes are pretty bad nowadays.

your totally correct.

I want my 13 inch wheels back!!!

wonder if a 13 inch spun shell wheel would fit, maybe with enough backspace!..

15 inch wheel with a 225/50 tire looks like my best bet at this point.

im really disappointed with the wheel tire combos availabe.

i want a 225/45/14 or a bigger selection of tires in 225/40-50/15

Just a note up front my 15" stock bbs wheels wouldn't allow for the wheel weights to be placed on the inside of the rim because caliper clearance was really tight. A 14" even with a spun shell might not happen.

I have a set of 13" steel spun rims that fit on a GSL-SE. I was hoping to have the same size wheel on a FC 5 hole rotor and brakes. I just did not want to spend $70 to have a wheel built only to find that it will not fit.
