They look really good with the OEM white steel wheels, too.

lol nice, man! I do like torque, but I'm not building this thing for purely off-roading. (Anything off-road related in this will be so boring compared to the stuff I did in the Green Dragon) Also, those types of mods tend to take away from drive-abilty, so this will just be an all around build that's a lot of fun to drive around town, or the occasional light trail, and the random snowstorm.

Yeah.... I like them too, but that's one thing I may have to change as larger tire sizes for a 13" wheel are non-existent. I do know BFG makes a 205/75r14..... but for now, the white wheels stay until there is more power under the hood or I get lucky at the junkyard and find some 4.10s to replace the current 3.73s.

What? You can't find a load range E mud terrain tire with a bead-lock rim in a 13"? You're not trying hard enough.

The stock size for my car is a 155/80R13 so technically I stepped it up a size. haha

If you can get some 15's on there it will open up a whole possibility of tire sizes

lol Thinking aobut some 15" Konigs or something similar... but I think more sidewall with the 14s will be better. We'll see.

In other news, I'm dropping her off at MAACO tomorrow to get a paint job. I'm doing rust removal and some sanding right now.

The question is, will I have power to turn them? lol If I can find a way to build this little tiny transmission and transfer case to withstand more power, in order to make the engine swap a reality this summer, I will go with the 27s. Or maybe even when I land some 4.10s at the junkyard.
