With about 2" of suspension lift on the Hornet, what are the tallest, skinniest 14" winter tires I can fit on the car?
Winters here are full of deep, drifting snow and lots of icy, rutted streets. 4x4s with big wide tires always end up in the ditch because they are just floating on the road. I'm looking for a tall, skinny studded tire that will dig into packed snow and bite into ice.
I tried out some teeny-tiny 155/80R13's last year, and I ended up digging myself out a few times because I didn't have enough ground clearance. The traction was amazing, though. In 2wd, it felt more like 4wd, and in 4wd, it was like driving on velcro!
I'm getting a set of 14" pugs with the Hornet, and I'd like to set them up as my winter tire set. I want the tallest, skinniest tire I can fit in there without having to hack or pound too much.
I'll have about 2" of lift, front and rear, using rx/accord springs and adjustable struts and shocks.
