MY 3/3 lift is on its way for my 86 brat. Im going to run 15 inch toyota rims from a 90 4-runner. Im looking at 26 or 27 inch tires, but i don't know what size i should get(205 70 15.......). So what size would be a good choice for 26-27 and still be narrow enough to fit on my brat? thanks

I am running 205/70R14's on my Wagon with a 3" lift. They fit perfectly without much fender trimming at all. They are a mud-terrain pattern, and were aprox $75ea and are 26" in diamter.

If you are looking for a mud terrain tire, it will be hard to find a 26" tire for a 15" rim. But if you want street tires it shouldnt be too hard.

p.s.
The tires i am running are Cooper Discoverer STT's

i have used 27x7" highliners on 14" alloy pugs. and now i am using 27x9.50" super swamper ssr's on steel pugs.

w/ 6 lug rims you should be able to use the wider tires anyway.
if you get pugs and plan to use them on offroad trips with lots of big rocks to negociate. do not get aluminum pug wheels!! i have destroyed a few. driving along everything is fine, till you are being pulled to the ditch. because your rim lost a 6 inch strip of the bead!! and your tire is coming off!! :madder:

I was looking at a 205 75 15 at my work today they were 27.4 inches tall but i dont know how wide. Could i go 215 75 or would that be too wide? What should i worry bout more the height or the width. Thanks for all the replys.

Width is completely dependant on the offset of the wheels you use.. Thats why pug wheels are so good for our cars.. the offset allows for minimal rub troubles. Toyota wheels have a different offset and stick out a little more I believe

Morgan,
the tires in the second pic are Cooper Discoverer STT's
STT from Cooper

these swampers in the 225/85R14 should fit with minimal trimming on an EA82...

what kind of wheels you gonna run. they would work good on Chevy wheels because of the offset. not sure if pugs would move 'em iout far enough... maybe. I'm running pug steel 14's on my 82 wagon, with 225/70R14's so really the 235s are only 5mm per side wider....
