2" lift. 205/75/14 tires on alloy pugs.

No bashing, it's a tight fit, but no rubbing.

 

I do have a load, so that's probably lowering it a little bit more than when there's no boat on the roof

No lift, but some people are interested in what fits without one, so here are 205/70/14s, with no lift, no bashing, and an ever so slight rub on the fender at full lock compressed suspension.

 

195/75/14s don't rub at all. The wheels are off of an older Dodge D50 (I think.)

^Nice ride! I've got a '96 and was curious about doing a lift and bumper kinda like that. Is this your daily driver? How much did all of it cost? And are you satisfied with the result?

Very neat.

 

How do these cars handle (especially the older GL's) around town? Do they feel unsteady when you hit something like a bump at hwy speeds?

 

My 86 kicks around alot but I would think that 27-33" tires would absorb alot more than the little 13" tires I have now.

3 inch lift all round

27 inch tyres on 14 inch scorpion rims of correct offset.

Some guard trimming on the front when I had desert rat rims.

Now some rubbing at full lock on chassis rails up front, only near the firewall though.

Honda civic front springs in the rear :D
