You did read the sticky at the top of the page?

And why would you put 13's on a chevy lug wheel?

If they are 13's and not 14's then they should fit no worries. Ofcause it all depends on the wheels offset......

205/75R13 is 25.1", plus an inch if you ment 14's...

(got them for free) but after a day of cutting and pounding in 90 degree weather i got them all to fit with no rubbing. now i just need something to put where i cut the fender. any ideas? pics soon to come. its looks great even with no lift. very excited :banana:

with the new tires on my car kind of shakes? i dont know the best way to put it. bouces slilghtly? could this be off balance tires. also it pulls more to the left then before i knew the alingment was off already but is it just more noticeable with larger tires? basically what im asking is if these are problems that can be taken care of with alingment and balancing? and is there anyway to make my suspension stiffer/longer? my rears run close to the well and i know one big bump would make them rub with my worn out suspension...

bigger tires then stock shouldn't have stopped les schwab from doing an alignment. i have never heard of that. what les schwab was it??????

you come to my store and i'll align it for you, unless you have wornout parts then they would have to be replaced. an alignment won't always stop a car from pulling, other things can cause a pull to. mine pulls i just live with it because i've mod the piss out of it and i'm running 15".

I'm not sure (I havent had a alignment in over 20yrs) but maybe the new setups are computerised and when you punch in 14in tires for a Subaru for the car info it comes up with a error.

I use a tape measure and align myself.

What can they really align on a stock EA82?? Steering is about it. Not hard to do it yourself really.
