HI
What can I put on this 1992 Loyale for tires and wheels to increase ground clearance?
Apparently, there is not much of a choice for tires with 13" wheels, is this true?
What do you recommend?

Thank you for your responses

I think they look great, for a 13" tire anyways.

Hi All,

I am new to the forum and have been searching threads for an answer, but haven't found it and this thread looks most recent and on-topic.

We have a white '91 Loyale wagon with stock rims and hub caps (only 3 - lost one in a Brooklyn pothole). While I grew up in So Cal, I had friends in Lake Tahoe and Colorado with Brats or DL/GLs and I always loved the utilitarian look of the white wagon wheels.

Are any wagon wheels (Jackman/EA81/EA82 ?) compatible with our Loyale? Is there anything specific that I need to watch out for when looking at used wagon wheels?

Thx

If you want the white wagon wheels, I think you need to make sure they are from an EA82... the EA81 ones won't fit over the brake calipers on the EA82's if you have new pads on there (they will with worn old pads...)
