Aggressive 14" tires?
Posted 07 July 2006 - 05:12 PM
The idea is to find a tire that I can run on an unlifted Subie or the Buggy.
There is not a lot out there in a 14" size in that range.
The problem is no one is manufacturing the small trucks that require them anymore.
What I'm finding is the only real sizes available are,
205/75/14 , good aggressive tires in this size but they are relatively TALL for our gears!
These will be in the 26" to 27" range.
205/70/14, snow tires are about the only thing available in this size as this is a car tire size.
These will measure out in the 25.5 range. The tread depth is not real deep on this size of tire.
195/75/14 , small truck size and a little more selection in aggressive tires.
These will also measure out in the 25.5 range and the tread depth is greater. The width is narrower than a 205/70.
The only thing I found that I like is the WildCat A/S at Les Schwab for $61 in a 195/75/14.
Anyone else looked into this?

They work fine on unlifted rigs.

Althought, my rig is lifted so I dunno how well they'll work on stock subes.
