I'm in the process of hunting down some new tires for my non lifted EA81. It was running Kuhmos on 14x5.5 pugs. From what I have heard the Kuhmos I had are discontinued.

Now the kuhmos barely stuffed in there without fender mods or lift. So what I am asking is. Has anyone here run 195/75 14'' Bridgestone Dueler A/T's on a non lifted EA81? Tire spec sheet says the tire is 25.7" Diameter 6" Tread Width.

Also another tire I have in mind, would be the Dayton Timberline A/T 195/75 14"s. The spec sheet says 25.5" OD. Though as well all know, tires are never exactly the OD they claim to be :-p So I'm really wondering who has had/tried them, I can make theory very well on my own thanks! Also this hatch is not to be lifted.

The question is... will they fit? Or will I have to just run snows :confused:

Thanks, Fishman

yeah did you notice, the fact that I asked if anyone is already running them? Because like shoes the tires are never the exact OD they list.

Can you tell us what kumho (model number, size?) you had on there? Wasn't one of the M/T's was it?

I have seen a rig with 28" tires on it that wasn't lifted. Enough modification and bashing and 195/75's should fit ok. Also remember that different back spacing on your wheels means you may or may not be able to have big wheels. But the 14" pug wheels are close to stock offset right?
