Had to goto the yard today for a few USMB members, and I thought i'd get some new tires for the Brat. They happend to come mounted on a set of 15" Pug Alloys. The tires are 205/60R15 Pirelli P600's. Probably have a few hundred/thousand miles left on them.

More pix can be seen here:

They only rub when i turn real tight, or if I hit a bump. The rear does not rub at all, the front does (only while turning). My front end is lowered all the way tho, i will need to raise it a bit.

NO! The brat will not be lifted. The brat is the street-rig, my wagon is my off-road rig.

Dave, i got 2 out of the 4 caps. The caps are the exact same caps that the 14" pugs have on my wagon. So i will take all 4 caps from the wagon, use 2 on the brat and have a couple for spares.

Hardcore. That Brat is unlifted. The rear struts are lowered all the way, so yes.... there is no problem running them on an unlifted Brat.


They are alittle unballanced, but i can already feel a MAJOR difference in cornering. There is almost no understear (keyword... ALMOST). As soon as I get them ballanced and get 2 more pug lug nuts, i will be able to REALLY test them out.

I can keep an eye out for the caps and lugnuts if I decide to buzz by the yard real quick, might stumble on another cargo cover.

lol... im not even using the Cover you gave me before. Was thinking of auctioning it on eBay and letting the proceeds going to the USMB fund.

I dont need caps either, but if you find some.... by all means grab them for me. And also the lugs. I know more will find they're way into the yard.

I also want to make a Carson City run real soon. So i'll keep you posted. Looks like we have a growing Nevada group.

That SR5 is my neigbors, we share a driveway (duplex).

Vicky... LOL! You must have been sleeping. Ive had the brat for like 6 months now :) There is no hatch in the background. The grey sube is a 1989 GL10 Turbo Touring Wagon, belongs to my roomate and it has a blown head gasket.
Fox, its a 1984 GL Wagon, you were close, but I dont remember you having one that looked like it.

Thanks guys for the compliments...the brat needs a wash, should have clean pix tonight.

Looks good, Bri.

Those are my favorite pug alloys. I was told that 205/55/15 was the largest size you could go with no mods, but I guess not.

I got those two pug lug nuts for ya BTW...
