i was wondering what is the biggest tire size i could fit under an 88 gl wagon and a byb 3/4 lift?
i'm willing to do trimming and pounding, just wondering what sizes i could fit and what pros/cons would come with that.

Some people run a 27 inch tire with very little trimming with that lift.

Don't think so. A few have used Toyota wheels and 28's are just a hair bigger so expect a hair more trimming. I am no expert though. But as far as I can see it shouldn't be a problem.

I'm running 28's on toyota rims on my 84 wagon. With some trimming, you should be fine. Mine are 215/75R15's which are 27.7" OD.

I installed the weber before the tires. Even with the weber, it's basically like driving a truck. I have to go to 4500 RPM before shifting, and if theres any serious hills on the freeway, I have to get over and let people by - and sometimes even go into third.

On most one ramps, it takes the whole thing to get to 55 (reads out as 46 MPH on my guage now).

It doesn't have bad acceleration - just drives like a truck - you won't be laying down any rubber with them. I can't spin the tires no matter how hard I try. If I got a better clutch, I think I might be able to chrip em.

Don't be afraid of doing it - it's not all that bad. I can do 75 on the freeway if there's no major hills.

Before the tires, I could lay down rubber for half a block, and then chirp em going into second - but I have a very good engine too. Low miles, and well cared for.
