I am about to get some new tires for my subi and was wondering if any one had any good suggestions for a good off roading tire that will fit on stock sub rims my budget is about 45 a tire. My car is a '82 gl wagon dr 4x4; also planning on doing a 2 or 3'' lift. Thanks

I think the biggest size you can get on a stock suby rim is 185-80-13. If you went pug or chevy wheel you can get into other rhelms. I dont advise getting douglas tires. I know Falkin and Goodyear make good 13inch tires still. Give them a look.

Screw the lift, with your type of budget.

Remember, a body lift doesn't actually give you any advantages.
It only allows for larger diameter tires to fit in the wheel wells,
and it will ,of course, look absolutely awesome.
A lift with stock size tires won't net you any additional
ground clearance or overall offroad-ability.

I've got 205/75/14 tires on an unlifted EA81, with only minimal cutting.
Go that route, and save your money for other goodies. :)

See where it says search, at the top of the page, third link from the right.
Give it a click. Then advanced search.
Highlight the forum of your choice (Older Generation, Offroad, etc.)

In the Keyword field, try the terms:
