If you find an all terrain r13, let me know. I will have to buy tires soon, and really can't find many options in a 13

I went to my local small tire guy shop that gets me good deals on cheap new tires. He found me Doral tires for my brat they are size 185/70/13. Thats the smallest and closest size he found me for my brat. All 4 and installed for $255.. So I got me some new tires!!!!

I have 155's on mine right now, But i like the look of the bigger 185's I was worried they might rub up front when i turn though are you having any problem with that??

u would have the rubbing problem like me if u where running 195/75/14's on peugeots:grin:they only rub on very sharp turns but it gives me about a 3 inch lift:headbang:i need to adjust the front suspension which will lift it about another inch in the front and take away the rubbing problem:headbang:

I ran 185/80R13 tires on my '78 Brat that was slammed to the ground. Didn't have any rubbing issues though I did burn through the rear set in 2 months.....

RWD Brat FTW!:headbang:
