Any recommendations?

1992 Accord LX.

I know they don't make good 14 inchers because the demand is very low volume so what's the best one can get?

Depends on your definition of good?

I have several '98-'03 Corollas (millions of them on the road) and I run BF Goodrich (because my buddy is a Goodrich dealer). But these are hardly performance cars so who cares? As long as they hold air and I don't slide around on the road, I'm good.

Check TireRack reviews for your car. I fine my 14" tire performance, very specific to the vehicle. I have had good luck with Kumho's

Some of my German made cars w/ 14's prefer Pirelli.

How places did you look before you decided they were "hard to find"? I did a quick online check at a local tire store and found about twenty different choices all the major manufacturers were covered.

Yes agree, I googled tires stores in Nutley NJ and there are at least a dozen I found that sell 14 inch tires.

Sorry I was referring to 14 inch tires for a 1996 Camry LE. Asking for a friend. Tire Rack only lists 2 Kumhos.

Frisco knows as much about cars as he does football (which is nothing) ignore him and he'll go away.

Your friend could always buy a set of 15 inch rims if necessary. Steelies shouldn't be too expensive. That would increase the available options some.
