I have an 81 GL with the 13in sport rims, and I'm planning on getting a lift. Do I have to get 14 or 15in rims to get 28in All terrains? Or will they work with normal rims.

You'll have a tougher time finding big tires for 13" rims then you will finding bigger rims ;)

i want to get some nice rims, but the scorpions are so expensive. Any suggestions on where to find some good rims other than the junkyard.

A junkyard is your only hope in most cases. You can look for a peugeot recycler or you can redrill your hubs to 6x140 to replace the 4x140. That way you can use almost any Toyota 6 lug rim.

You wont find anything near 28" for a 13" rim.
